Charities

Oakley College is proud of the many fundraising events the students take part in to support worthwhile causes in our local community, nationally and internationally.

Raising money for charities can be a springboard to help young people become active global citizens. It can help students learn more about the global issues that affect us all, develop essential skills to help them to change the world around them and understand more about the work of charities such as those that the school supports

In secondary the fund raising activities are often linked to the student’s community service. linking the individuals practical work with causes the school supports.

We believe that it is vital for our school community to be involved in issues that affect the world we live in, even if they do not affect us directly. The regular charities we support include

The Halloween party at the end of October each year is our principal charity event within school.  Students, parents and family members come together to celebrate the occasion with fancy dress parades, food stalls, drinks, and lots of games and events for the children. A central part of the event is the raffle where parents generously provide prizes personally or through their business or company. All money raised from the event goes towards our local children’s cancer charity, Pequeño Valiente.
