Charities We Support
The Welcome Centre, Huddersfield.
Since 2013, St Thomas Primary School has been linked with The Welcome Centre in the heart of Huddersfield.
As we learnt more, we were invited to visit the centre and see for ourselves what hard work and dedication goes into running such an important service. On our first visit, our pupils, teachers and parents across the school community donated nearly 50 bags of food and household goods.
Since then, we have been back each Autumn, filling our school mini bus with the fantastic response to our annual Harvest collections at St Thomas' Church.
The Royal British Legion
Each November we sell poppies to commemorate armistice day. We hold school assemblies and the older children observe a two-minute silence.
Children in Need
Each November we join in with the national charity day Children in Need. We generally follow the national theme but try to keep the day low key perhaps with a non uniform day.
Each year, our school takes part in the NSPCC Number Day. It's a fun, nationwide maths fundraising event for children and young people of all ages that helps raise money to support the NSPCC.
As a school we all dress up in mathematical clothing and spend the school day taking part in a variety of hands on, fun, practical maths activities.
Comic Relief/Sports Relief
Each March we join in with the national charity day Comic/Sports relief. We generally follow the national theme but try to keep the day low key perhaps with a non uniform day.
