Charity & Outreach

Giving back is an important part of the Cavina philosophy. Through our charity drives, many of them led by the children themselves, our pupils learn to understand how fortunate they are and that we all have a responsibility to help make the world a better place.

Charity events take place every term. Each academic house takes charge of one charity day a term, with the pupil leadership identifying and selecting charities to support before working out how to raise money for them. Recent examples of what the pupils have organised include readathons, village fairs, raffles and treasure hunts. The whole school is involved, with all pupils coming to school in costume.

Aside from the house charity days, the school runs other events such as the annual bucket appeal at Christmas and the poppy appeal for Kenyan servicemen who fought in the Second World War. The principal charity we support is the East Africa Character Development Trust, which works with more than 4,000 children in Nairobi’s informal settlements, supporting them through feeding, training and sporting programmes designed to give hope to underprivileged youngsters and to identify future leaders and sportsmen and women.
