Children supported Oxfam as part of their World Book Day celebrations. They had a visit from representatives of the Oxfam Bookshop, who explained how the youngsters could raise money for people in war-torn countries or those suffering from natural disasters.
The pupils had brought books in to school to give to the shop in Duke Street to sell in aid of the charity. The children made bookplates and bookmarks to insert into the books to remind people buying them how they were helping people in need.
On the day itself the children were asked to bring in £1 and the money will be used to buy items for a community that is struggling with basic needs and hygiene. The pupils and staff also dressed up as their favourite book characters and teachers shared their favourite books in a special assembly.
The children took part in book-related activities, including role play, writing reviews and creating a a special story on the theme of ”Journeys” for the forthcoming Henley Youth Festival
