On Monday 15th November 2021, Oathall Community College students and staff will be supporting the charity The Diana Award during the national Anti-Bullying week.

We ask that students and staff donate £1.50 to the charity and in return, they are to wear a pair of odd socks (this could just be mismatching plain socks or brightly coloured and patterned) for the day to promote difference and individuality. The rest of the uniform remains as normal and socks can be worn over tights. Donations can be made via School Gateway.

About The Diana Award

This charity was founded as a legacy to Diana, Princess of Wales’ belief that young people have the power to change the world for the better. The Anti-Bullying campaign is one of the areas supported by the charity to engage young people in social action to make a difference in the lives of others.

How your money helps

Set up in 2011, the Anti-Bullying Ambassador programme is part of The Diana Award Charity. In 2013, the programme received funding from the Department for Education. The programme offers resources and training to schools and youth organisations in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Thank you for supporting the school and helping us to raise awareness.

 

UPDATE: We are pleased to announce that over £600 was raised for The Diana Award through Odd Socks Day at Oathall this year.  Thank you to everyone involved.
