What is Raise the Roof?
Raise the Roof is a community campaign to fund the enhancement of facilities at St Nicholas Primary School in Chislehurst.
The aim is to broaden and enrich educational experiences at St Nicks by providing more teaching areas – specifically a brand new creative learning studio, fully equipped with the latest technology for teaching the arts, IT and science.
The driving force behind Raise the Roof was Donna Bompas, a local art teacher and long-serving governor of the school. Donna was a champion of our community and is known for her enthusiasm in bringing the people of Chislehurst together for events such as the Jubilee Picnic, the Queen's Tea Party, the Open Air Cinema and the Chislehurst Big Draw.
Donna loved teaching art and working with children. She was committed to ensuring that the school continues to serve our community with the best possible opportunities for learning and development.
