In the academic year 2015 – 2016, Terra Nova School supported the charity Facing Africa. A total of £15,000 was raised by the pupils and staff at TN through a variety of fundraising activities including a sponsored walk up Winder, cake sales, whole school face painting and various inter house competitions.
During the academic year 2016 – 2017, Terra Nova pupils and staff supported the Frances House hospice. This year £5000 was the total raised.
In March 2018, Dr La Coste, Terra Nova School’s Medical Officer will share information about her recent trip to Ethiopia when she supported the work of Facing Africa.
In November 2015, Year 7 and some of their siblings scaled Winder in Cumbria. Despite the wind, the rain and the fog, a marvellous time was had by all, everyone made it to the top and back down again and the bond between our stalwart Year 7s was strengthened further.
Cake sales and sweet sales crop up in the diary regularly at Terra Nova school. An excellent fund raiser every time, the children who organise the cake sales are rewarded by clean plates as fellow pupils stock up on end of week treats on Fridays! Not every Friday we hasten to add!
The brainwave of Capesthorne House! Capesthorne teamed together and painted every child that wanted to be face painted with an African animal of choice in support of “Facing Africa”. The children looked fabulous and the face paints stayed on all day!
