The Rowans AP Academy

Inspiring change for a brighter future

Charity

Here at The Rowans AP we support many charities throughout the academic year both in our local community and wider afield. In the first student council meeting of the year pupils decide on which charities they would like to support and raise money for. Five charity events are then planned, promoted, and led by the student council. The charities we have chosen to support this year are Macmillan cancer support, Wear it Pink, Children in need, Comic Relief and the British Heart Foundation. Event types include: cake sales, teacher and pupils’ sports events, tag days and themed raffles.

Shoe Box Appeal

Additionally, The Rowans also support The Samaritans shoebox appeal annually in form groups. The Samaritans provide a Christmas gift box for under privileged children both in the UK and overseas. Form groups plan, create and decorate a shoe box and these are then hand delivered by the student council to a nearby Samaritans location.

Food Hampers & Afternoon Teas

The Rowans are passionate about supporting our local community with acts of kindness.  Food hampers and Harvest boxes are created each year and given to elderly people in Medway and additionally, we provide weekly afternoon teas for the resident church group. This not only minimises the food waste we produce but also provides a hand delivered sweet treat every Friday.
