There are many ways that your primary school can support us from non uniform days, Teddy Bears Picnics or take part in our Change Challenge. We can arrange tours of the hospice or we can deliver assemblies or classroom workshops to all year groups. We can also send representatives to collect the money you raise, present certificates and say thank you.
For nursery students we tell them the story of our nurse and her day to day life at the hospice, for Key Stage 1 students we bring our Treasure Chest and explain through objects like candles, chocolates and stephoscopes why St Joseph's Hospice is such a special place and with Key Stage 2 we ask the students to act a role play following the life of one of our patients and the people they meet at the hospice.
We have many opportunities for secondary schools to get involved with us from volunteering at the hospice to supporting the team with social media projects.
Apprentice Style Fundraiser
You're hired! We're looking for the next superstar fundraiser to help raise funds for the hospice. Working individually or in teams, students will be required to pitch their fundraising idea to an expert panel of fundraisers before going on to hold their event. Will your fundraising be enough to impress?
Volunteering at the hospice
We're looking for schools to run a session with our day hospice, this could be anything from holding a craft session to performing a play, the choice really is yours.
Social Media Savvy
Are your students fantastic on Facebook or terrific on Twitter? We're looking for students who can support us with our social media campaigns. Students will be given an event to look after and it will be their responsibility to come up with exciting and engaging posts we can use.
Have you got students interested in pursuing a career within the healthcare sector? Our career days are a perfect way to gain a snapshot of the range of careers available by hearing presentations from different healthcare professionals and question and answers.
