Fundraising plays an important part in the life of The Granville. From an early age, we teach that every one of us can make a real difference to the lives of others. Everyone is encourage to participate in projects for the benefit of others and to raise money to help those less well off than they are.
The Granville’s commitment to fundraising and raising awareness of those less fortunate is closely linked to our PSHCE curriculum. We believe this is an intrinsic part of each child’s educational development and enables them to play a more developed role within the wider community.

Every year the school supports Samaritan’s Purse with Operation Christmas Child.
Operation Christmas Child is an initiative of Samaritan’s Purse – a Christian relief organisation. It is the world’s largest Christmas project, bringing joy into the lives of children who need them most in some of the toughest parts of the world. An army of dedicated volunteers give their time to ensure the shoeboxes are delivered to where they need to go.
Staff and pupils fill shoeboxes with small gifts of toys, sweets, stationery, toiletries, gloves, hats, scarves, bracelets and necklaces etc. The box are covered in Christmas paper and labelled indicating the age group and whether for a boy or girl.
Thanks to everyone for their generosity in supporting this very worthwhile project.
