Raise the Roof! for St Nicholas School

Charity description

Raise the Roof! for St Nicholas School logo
Raise the Roof is a community campaign to fund the enhancement of facilities at St Nicholas Primary School in Chislehurst. The aim is to broaden and enrich educational experiences at St Nicks by providing more teaching areas – specifically a brand new creative learning studio, fully equipped with the latest technology for teaching the arts, IT and science.

The renovation work will cost £280k in total. Much of this will be covered by Aquinas (the Multi-Academy Trust St Nicks joined in 2014) incorporating funds held by the school. However, with only limited reserves and responsibility for 10 different schools, Aquinas is unable to fund the building work in its entirety. 

Raise the Roof seeks to raise £130k through a programme of community events. The money will be used to reconfigure the school layout and refurbish the new rooms.

The driving force behind Raise the Roof was Donna Bompas, a local art teacher and long-serving governor of the school. Donna was committed to ensuring that St Nicks continues to serve its pupils and the wider community with the best possible opportunities for creativity and learning.
