In order to highlight our core values and develop our pupils’ consideration for the needs of people in our local and international community, the students are heavily engaged in charity work and fundraising events. In all cases we aim to build lasting relationships.
All pupils are encouraged to take an active and meaningful role in supporting charitable organisations in Marbella and globally.
All who form part of the Aloha Community are overflowing with generosity – our pupils could organise a charity campaign every day if we let them. Instead of this, to collect reasonable amounts of money efficiently we have an annual Charity Plan.
Our aim is to channel the ideas that are presented to us, mainly by our pupils, and put them into action. From music concerts to non-uniform days, there are many ways of raising money for charity.
Dedicated, committed and caring students
The Interact Club comprises a group of eighteen Year 12 students who dedicate their time to organising events and activities to raise money for charity. They work closely alongside the Rotary Club, Collective Calling, and other organisations in Marbella and the province of Málaga such as the Estepona Etiopía project. Their activities so far this year include: various bake sales in addition to the regular tuck shop; a stall at the Christmas Bazaar; selling refreshments and snacks at the Christmas Concert; a festive end of term party for Year 7 students. Recently, they played a huge part in the BE KIND campaign and shoe box appeal, collecting and wrapping presents to send off internationally and delivering some personally to a local children’s orphanage in Alora. There are numerous future projects for this term as well as continuing with the “Be Kind” campaign.
Save the children
Aloha College collaborates with “Save the Children”, an NGO committed to change the children’ world so they can enjoy proper education, save them from dying of avoidable causes and help them to come out of poverty and violence.
Certain events recur every year, like the Cudeca “race”, where Primary and Secondary children are sponsored for the metres they run.
We also invest in the calendar produced by the local Association CRECE which offers support to children with disabilities, and we contribute to food banks for those in need.
Every year there are new initiatives which underline to our pupils the value and importance of supporting those less fortunate than ourselves.
