Community Action Projects; The MediOliver Foundation

This year we supported five charities from varying sectors, all nominated by members of the UCS Community.

Aims

The MediOliver Foundation: a foundation focussing on projects that bring opportunities to children through education, health and sport set up in the Name of Medi Oliver Mera, who sadly passed away in the summer of 2014, just months before he was due to start the UCS Senior School.

Background

There are assemblies held to promote the charities and events, as well as the support of tutors and the pastoral network to give students the confidence to take on the challenge of having ownership of their fundraising.

Resources

Students learn about issues that affect their own community as well as wider national and international issues. This project allows students to get actively involved in charity work through a safe and structured environment, paving the way for them to become further involved and giving them the skills needed to make sensible choices about their contributions to society in years to come.

Impact

Pupils from across the Senior School are invited to take part, with Committee members drawn from all years and events held in every corner of the school.

Pupil Involvement

All pupils of all ages, instigated by pupils for their own community action ideas and projects.

Frequency

Ongoing events throughout the year.
