OXFAM and Northlands Primary School have joined forces to raise money for the Repairing a Classroom project.

The school chose Oxfam to support as its charity for the year and is aiming to raise £1,500 to give a school community a new classroom. Northlands planned an enrichment day so that pupils can learn more about Oxfam and held a non-uniform day in return for donations.

The school is also collecting clothes and other items to donate to Oxfam in Regent Street, while some pupils spent the afternoon volunteering in the shop. Other events leading up to Christmas have also been planned.

As part of the project the shop window has been turned into a classroom, created by the arts department at Rugby college.
