International Project

We are delighted to be working on an International Project based in India.

The Children’s Community Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that is developing a platform that brings together children, parents, teachers, schools and child care professionals under one umbrella.         CCF is developing a magazine in India for children of the age 10-18 years from urban backgrounds initially.  The Foundation will also act as an independent voice for children in India. 

Our mission is:

To develop and provide high quality and innovative services and projects for children and young people, where they can experience the benefits of a supportive and caring environment which enhances and maximises their potential.

To work towards a society which ensures that every child has the best start in life and prospects for a better future.

To develop the Children’s Community Foundation which will tenaciously pursue its mission without fear, favor or compromise and to continually ensure that the best interests, human rights and protection of the child are placed before all other considerations. We achieve our mission by combining the power of education, campaigning and developing innovative projects and services.

Our Senior Students Jack Harris and Charlotte Lambie are representing the school as Global Ambassadors in the Global Youth Ambassadors Programme.  They join a group of young adults who have a strong sense of civic responsibility, a commitment to community development, an awareness of current & global issues, and strong interpersonal leadership skills. The Program will aim to bring together high school students from across the globe to promote mutual understanding, increase leadership skills, and prepare youth to make a difference in their communities. The network will offer opportunities to connect with, and learn from other young people, while gaining knowledge and developing their skills.

Chloe Ross is leading on our involvement in the publication of articles written by students involved with our school magazine.  These articles will be published in an Indian publication to be distributed globally.
