Christian Aid

Christian Aid is a partnership of people, churches and local organisations committed to ending poverty worldwide. Each year St.Oswald's school and Church take part in a range of activities to raise money for the charity.

Harvest September 2023:

This year we focused 'Climate Change'. The children explore the impact on global issues but also issues closer to home. Each class focused on a book and this formed the childrens contribution to the harvest service and then a dispay in the hall.

Christian Aid Week 2023:

This year we supported the Big Pea Challenge. Pupils and families were encouraged to guess the amount of dried pea in the jar. Our Vision Leaders also planned a penalty shoot out and to take part the children were encouraged to bring in a donation for the 'Fans Supporting Foodbank'. The children were amazed by the amouint of donations recieved. 

Harvest September 2022:

Our Harvest Festival was based on Fair Trade. Each class produced work, such as poems, art and songs that were shared in the Church Service. The work was then proudly displayed in the school hall.

World Refugee Day June 2022:

The hall was set up with 2 prayer spaces. One space had a dingy where the children could sit in and have a sense of what a dangerous journey crossing the seas could be. The other had a rucksack and the children were asked the question, If you had to leave your home in a hurry, what would you take with you? The children set up a school uniform sale where used uniform could be sold for as little as 50p per item.

Christian Aid Week May 2022:

Each class completed a reflective journey activitiy.
EYFS Firm foundations
Year 1 & 2 Mighty oaks from little acorns grow
Y3 That's not fair
Y4 You're welcome
Y5 & Y6 United by hope
Everybody then joined together to complete the Hope Blossoms Prayer Activity.


Harvest September 2021:

Our Harvest Festival is based on the theme 'Drink from the Well'. Each class produced a short video about a water theme and these were played in St. Oswald's Church. Nursery purchased a water butt to use recycled water within the outdoor environment.
