A Piece of the Heart

Heart Cell's Foundation fundraiser Friday 11th February

On the 11th February, the children will take part in our 'Piece of the Heart' themed day where they will be exploring what it means to have a physically healthy and emotionally healthy heart. The children will be expected to come to school dressed in something red (the more hearts the better) and bring a small donation of £2.00, which will support the work of The Heart Cell's Foundation.

We are proud to be able to announce that we raised £1725 in support of
The Heart Cell's Foundation.

What the Heart Cell's Foundation do:

Saving Lives

Furthering Collaboration

Supporting and funding the growth of the Compassionate Unit, St Bartholomew's Hospital - the first of its kind in Europe.

Advancing Developments

Continuing further stem cells research and raising funds for Phase III Regen DCM Trial.

Supporting Research

Facilitating stem cell research and the evolution of the regenerative field of medicine.

Ultimate Goal

Ensuring that ground-breaking regenerative treatment is available to all on the NHS and beyond…

The children and staff will be required to take part in four heart themed activities on our themed day. For each activity that the children complete, they will receive a piece of the heart puzzle in order to build their emotionally and physically healthy heart. The activities include:

  • A beating heart puzzle piece: an obstacle course.
  • A hungry heart puzzle piece: the designing of a 'healthy heart' lunch box
  • A grateful trail heart puzzle piece: a timed obstacle course to express gratitude
  • A kind heart puzzle piece: performing three acts of a kindness to a friend on this day

Once the heart puzzle is complete these can be decorated and displayed in classrooms celebrating what it means to have a physically and emotionally healthy heart. Once the children have built their heart puzzles, they will be rewarded with a certificate to take home to celebrate their hard work throughout the course of the day, knowing that they have made a difference to their own heart and the hearts of others.
