First Give gets underway at West Hatch High School
 
A representative from First Give visited West Hatch High School on Monday (January 30) to deliver an assembly to Year 8 students.
 
First Give is a charity that works in partnership with secondary schools to help young people to give their time, tenacity and talents to improve their local communities.

Students in Year 8 have already started discussing First Give and thinking about their projects, as part of their Religious Studies lessons.

Students start by learning more about social issues within their local community before researching a local charity to represent. 

They then connect with that charity and find out more about what it does and who it helps.

Students then create a presentation based around their chosen charity and teams take part in a class competition and then school competition to find a team to represent West Hatch at the grand finals.

This is an amazing programme which encourages students to engage with a local charity and take part in social action whilst developing key employability skills which will benefit them in the future.  

Head of House Guy Blain said: "There was a fantastic start to our First Give presentation programme.  

"The assembly was chance for all the students to hear about the different creative ways they can deliver a high quality presentation and show a good awareness of social issues."
