Alhamdulillah pupils and families at Olive high contributed non perishable foods for the winter food bank. JazakAllah khair to all who contributed to this worthy project. The food collected was then taken to Burnley community kitchen to help the needy and homeless during the month of December .
Our year 7/8 pupils as part of the Citizenship curriculum went to Preston Combined courts visit. They had the opportunity firsthand to see the inside of a courtroom and understand the Judicial system and its processes. The pupils really enjoyed this aspect of learning and gave them a better insight of how the law and the Judicial system operates in our society.
The school held a food bazaar to raise money for special educational resources for children in Palestine. All the food was contributed by the pupils and their families. We would like to thank all who took part in this. we raised £1049.20. JazakAllah khair to all those who contributed and helped on the day.
As part of the History and Citizenship curriculum year 7 pupils visited the Heritage exhibition in Preston. This trip was an ongoing part of the schools curriculum enrichment process. It gave the pupils the opportunity to step back into history and see how the first community of people who arrived from the sub continent after world war 2 lived and the different types of employment they pursued.
