The pupils at OLA are actively encouraged to realise their responsibilities to those less fortunate than they are. Through the PSHE and RE curriculum, the children come to understand the importance of sharing their good fortune with people from a wide background of need, both nationally and internationally.
We are currently supporting a girl in Uganda with school fees and other associated costs. The children often write to her and in return we receive regular letters, updates and school reports.
The children, through School Council, often organise various fund raising events such as cake sales, non-uniform days, raffles and collections. In Year Six the pupils organise an annual charity effort which involves car washing, running various stalls and games.
We bi-annually support the work of the NSPCC and in 2010 the school raised £2500 for this very worthy cause.
