One of the key features of King Richard III College is the strong sense of community with a warm family atmosphere. Woven into the fabric of KR3 are the values of compassion, empathy and consideration.
Each year, our students participate in numerous charity events, reaching out to help a variety of groups both on the island and further afield. The School Council plays a fundamental role in organising and running these events.
Each academic year a local charity is chosen as our ‘Focus Charity’. All money raised throughout the year is donated at the end year celebrations. The generosity and commitment within the KR3 community has led to annual donations of more than €11,000 for the last 4 years.
Focus Charity for 2017/18: Asociación Española Contra El Cáncer
At Hallowe’en, our school council organises fundraising activities such as the bake sale and spooky disco party. They also transform the 6th Form Common Room into a haunted house! The Primary School children enjoyed their annual parade while the Secondary School students enjoyed watching each others’ homemade horror movies in the dining room. Over €500 was raised that day!
Sponsored Walk, October 2017
Every year all students from Year 5 to Year 11 take part in our Sponsored Walk from Santa Ponsa beach via a 15km route back to school. This year over 160 students took part in the walk, accompanied by teachers, parents and dogs! On arrival back at school we had a picnic lunch and activity afternoon organised by our 6th form students. This year, a total of €3850 was raised by our students and their generous sponsors.
