Harvest Celebration 2023

On Tuesday 17th October we held our annual Harvest celebration. Children in Olympus and Blencathra sang the songs they had been busy learning and shared artwork they made while learning about Harvest. As part of our celebration and commitment to supporting the wider community a collection was made for Witney and West Oxfordshire Food Bank.

Shoe Box Appeal 2023

One of the first jobs of the year for the School Council class reps was to speak to their classes about this year's Teams4U Christmas shoe box appeal. They explained the reasons for the collection, shared lists of items that could be included in the box and the deadline for bringing boxes into school. Participating in the appeal gives the students an oportunity to learn about other areas of the world, develop and demonstrate empathy & compassion for others, and participate in an activity for the benefit of others beyond the school community. Class boxes were made, alongside individual complete boxes that were donated. Over 20 boxes were delivered to Witney Methodist Church. We are already collecting items to go in the boxes for Christmas 2024.

Comic Relief 2023

Eager students, teachers, and staff came together in a flurry of laughter and creativity to support this charitable cause.

The day kicked off with an enchanting Bake-off, where the school's talented bakers showcased their culinary skills. Mouthwatering aromas wafted through the halls as delectable treats came into the school grounds. From whimsical cupcakes adorned with colourful noses to intricate cakes resembling beloved Red Nose Day characters, each creation was a testament to the students' imagination and baking prowess.

In the spirit of spreading joy, Queen Emma's Primary School also organised a sponsored jokeathon. Hilarity echoed through the corridors as students delighted in sharing their funniest and most clever jokes. Laughter became the currency of the day, and with every giggle, donations poured in to support Red Nose Day's mission of changing lives through the power of comedy.

The school community rallied together, embracing the importance of empathy and compassion. Students learned valuable lessons about the impact of their actions, understanding that even small gestures of kindness can make a significant difference in the lives of those less fortunate.

Queen Emma's Primary School proved that giving back is not just a one-time event but a spirit that thrives within their vibrant community. Through their Bake-off and sponsored jokeathon, they showed that laughter, creativity, and generosity can come together to create a brighter future for children around the world.IMG 1603
