Charity and Community Work
At Knowle DGE we’re really proud of the charity work we do. We believe it is important for young people to see themselves as part of a wider community and to be aware of issues facing others.
In December 2017 staff and pupils collected donations of warm clothes, sleeping bags and Christmas shoe boxes for St Julian Trust Night Shelter.
In October 2017 over £200 was raised for REFRESH charity in Bedminster. Staff and pupils took part in a sponsored gunge to raise money.
