Make A Difference Day 2024

Radnor’s commitment to community service is extensive and underlined by our annual ‘Make a Difference Day’ (MaDD) which sees the whole school (less those studying for exams) volunteer a whole day of service to charitable and voluntary organisations around us. 

House Activities and Community Projects:

Eynsford Eagles visited Willows Bird of Prey and Valence School.

At Willows, our students tended to a flower garden: flattening molehills, raking leaves, weeding, and taking part in nature craft activities. 

Valence School works with children and young people who have physical disabilities and complex medical needs, Radnor pupils met a selection of Valence pupils and worked with them to design an orienteering course. They also visited Valence School's Westerham Community shop to find out more about its aims and opportunities.

Penshurst Falcons visited Ightham Mote.

Pupils helped improve this beautiful National Trust site by undertaking important outdoor conservation work such as tidying the gardens, clearing the stream edge, helping with path repairs, planting, and coppicing willows.

Hever Hawks visited Westerham Food Bank, Leonard Cheshire and Trosley Country Park.

At Westerham Food Bank, pupils sorted and dated donations of food, prepared Easter bags and helped staff to organise donations for service users.

Trosley Country Park is a site of 170 acres of beautiful woodland and chalk downland, with spectacular views over the North Downs. Twenty seven pupils from Hever Hawks were tasked to clear the Forest School area of brambles and nettles. The team set to work under Mr Fuller's direction,  with gusto and not only cleared away the encroaching brambles and holly from the area, but also cleared the nearby bank which had become covered in the weeds.

Lullingstone Kites visited Lullingstone Country Park and hosted a 'MADD Hatter' themed tea party for Rockdale House Residents.

At Lullingstone Country Park, pupils helped by litter picking, deadheading, clearing flower beds, and taking part in other gardening tasks.

Prep School pupils were involved in a number of projects at School including litter picking, helping to clear areas of the grounds, planting more plants and flowers and designing posters to support local charities.
