    Story

    Each year the Penrice Academy Council, led by our Head Boy and Girl Gabe Connolly and Natalie Pramuk, work together to support charities around the world.

    Mr Knipe, Assistant Principal, has been involved with Project 3580 for four years. Based in a refugee camp in Kissi Town, Sierra Leone, the Project will help with the refurbishment of the local school and provide much needed medical supplies for the community.

    With the help of staff, students, families and the wider community of St Austell and Cornwall, Penrice Academy hopes to crowdfund in excess of £10000 – or 70 million Leones – to help this incredible charity, which was founded by Neil Morland, a former colleague of Mr Knipe. The money raised will go towards the cost of transporting the container of donations.

    Gabe Connolly, Head Boy, said: “We have some brilliant fundraising ideas and we’re really excited about this project and the huge difference it will make.”

    The Council have drawn up plans for fundraisers for the coming year – from cake sales to sponsored runs – which will culminate in another 24 hour event in the Spring.

    Departments across the school are also working together for the project; from Design Technology and Art creating a donation box for Reception, to Performing Arts already planning gigs and shows in support.

    MR Knipe is also planning another visit for Easter 2017 with staff from Penrice Academy, to take word of the students’ charity efforts and personally present them with letters from students at Penrice to help really connect with the children of Kissi Town.

    He said: “I believe this project is going to be a truly life changing experience for our students at home running the fundraising, our staff who visit the project and, most importantly, for the young children of Kissi Town who will benefit from our help.”
