We held our annual Crufts event at our Summer Fayre. The children love being able to bring their dogs and show them off by entering them for different categories. We hope you enjoy looking at some of the winners from this year's event.

The goats have arrived for the families in Uganda. Thank you to all those who raised enough money to buy goats - these will truly change their lives.

Meet Elizabeth. Elizabeth is 6 years old and through monies raised during Lent we are able to sponsor Elizabeth for 3 years. This is such a wonderful gift to be able to give to a child that without it would struggle and would remain uneducated and continue in poverty into adulthood. Thank you once again.

Nkuringo Community - Uganda

We are currently establishing some very strong links with the Nkuringo Foundation Nursery and Primary School in a remote area of Uganda.

The children in Oak have been writing letters to the children, which are hand-delivered by a group from the charity Go Uganda, twice a year.

I will be travelling out to visit the school and the children in October 2019 and to deliver some much-needed aid - shoes, clothing and school equipment in particular.

We have also been looking at ways to raise money, and currently 2 girls from Oak - Alice and Katie - have managed to raise 3/4 of the money needed to sponsor a child for a full year's food, lodgings and education.  We will be using our Lenten Project to support the raising of more funds - more information to follow.

I will be collecting aid from anyone who wants to donate, from June 2019 onwards -  again, more information to follow.

I would like to thank everyone for all the support so far with helping to make a real difference to people who are not as fortunate as ourselves.

Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day

 

 

Supporting those in need at Christmas time

 

Thank you to all who have donated items for the food bank, animal shelters or toys for children in our local area instead of buying Christmas presents for staff. All of your kind donations are much appreciated. 

Thank you!

The children in Beech class shared the true joy of Christmas by making Christmas cards for residents in one of our local residential homes and then hand delivering these. Well done children, you really have let Jesus' shine within our community!

Macmillan Coffee Morning: September 2018

 

Thank you to all who came and supported our coffee morning. We raised £288.96 for Macmillan! 

 

 

 

 

 

During the first half of our summer term, we shall be exploring the value of 'service' within worship. As part of this exploration, each class will vote upon a charity to support and children will raise money for their chosen charity by doing jobs at home/within the family. See the letter below for further details and look out for further information on your child's ClassDojo page.
A big thank you from all at school and Rev'd Toby to all those who sent tins, packets, toiletries, etc for the food bank – and money for the Bishop’s Harvest Appeal – all those sellotaped £1s and 50ps added up to £125 which goes to help Tree Aid (working in the dry parts of Africa giving all year round food and helping protect the environment) and a Christian Aid partner working in Burundi to teach specialist agricultural knowledge to local farmers in that very poor country.
Well done everyone!

Harvest Festival 2017. We donated food items, and attached 50p/£1 to our items, in support of the local food banks. We are thankful that we have enough food to eat.

Class Lent Projects

 

Each of our classes in school will be thinking about a charity that they would like to raise money for during Lent as part of our school Lent project.  The children in each class will vote and choose which charity to support as a class and then come up with ideas about how they could raise money for their chosen charity. Even if each class raised £10, what a sense of achievement for our children to have worked together to do something for someone else!

Look out on Class Dojo for details of class Lent projects.

I shall update this section with photos as each event takes place.

Wear your 'onesie' and raise money for the Manchester Children's Hospital Burns' Unit

 

Well done everyone, you raised £294.60 for this superb cause! Marissa would like to say thank you to you all for supporting her chosen charity. I think Marissa was extremely brave to share her story with you and I am proud of her for having the confidence to do so. Knowing that your fundraising efforts will help other children, just as they helped your friend Marissa. should make you feel very proud of yourselves. What a great feeling to know you have helped others!

Carol singing in the community

 

Once again our year 6 children did a fantastic job bringing festive cheer to the elderly in our local community. Year 6 visited two local residential homes and sang Christmas carols to (and with!) the residents. I know that it means such a lot to the residents when we visit, seeing everyone smiling and joining in makes me feel very warm inside!

Year 6 were superb, interacting with the residents, talking to them about their Christmas plans and events in school, as well as singing beautifully. Well done year 6!

The true meaning of Christmas is all about what you bring to the lives of others and today you made people happy!

Operation Christmas Child 2016

As a Church primary school, holding at our heart the core Christian Values, we endeavour to ensure that our faith extends beyond what we do within our school and as such we  support a range of charities and charity events throughout the year. We feel that it is important for our children to understand how lucky they are and to develop an awareness of how little others do have. 

 

Each year we run a Macmillan coffee morning, raising finds for Macmillan cancer support. Our year 6 children are involved in planning and running this event.

We support the Bishop's Harvest Appeal and also our local food bank through our Harvest celebrations each year. 

Our JAM Club lead our school in supporting Operation Christmas Child each Christmas, preparing shoe boxes of gifts for children in other parts of the world where they would otherwise have nothing to mark this Christian festival. 

We support a range of children's charities throughout the year through a wide range of events; UNICEF Christmas jumper day, Children in Need. We ask our school council to think about charities that they would like to support. 

As a school we sponsor 2 children in an area of the world which is less developed than our own. Each year we run a sponsored event event to raise money to enable us to continue to sponsor children in another area of the world. We love receiving letters and cards from our 'adopted' children.
