Oakeley House have been fundraising for Breast Cancer Now

Oakeley House charity week started off brilliantly with a cake sale on the 6th February to raise money for Breast Cancer Now charity. It was incredible to see everyone in house get involved by baking cakes, brownies and cookies over their weekend to sell around school. Everyone in house was very enthusiastic and the effort put into the baking was shown through the fabulous turn out that they had! The house prefects and Sixth Form were very helpful as they sold cakes in break times and it was great to see other houses getting involved by buying lots, as well as teachers buying trays of cakes for their classes. Oakeley were all really pleased with how the day went and were very grateful to everyone who contributed to such a great cause!

Oakeley held their annual Valentine’s Ball for all Sixth Form pupils on the Thursday of the same week. The ball included entertainment for the guests, including line dancing, a Mr & Mrs quiz, a temporary tattoo parlour and a delicious meal. It was decorated in an Alice and Wonderland theme with bottles filled with fairy lights that the girls had made themselves. The ball was in Big School Hall, which had been decorated with fairy lights, playing cards, roses and lots of flowers. The night ended with more dancing and a DJ, and all the girls contributed to not only putting up the decorations but also making them. Thank you to everyone who made it a night to remember, the girls should be very proud of themselves! With the Bake Sale, Valentine’s Ball and Home Clothes Day combined, Oakeley raised a total of £2089.44 for Breast Cancer Now!
