Oxford School Wish List

With the recommendation and support of the School Advisory Council (SAC), teachers at Oxford School have compiled a “wish list” of materials needed to enhance our children’s education. As many of you know, it is becoming more and more difficult for schools to financially supply all the materials needed to deliver a current and innovative curriculum.

Please consider making a donation to our school from the lists below, either in the form of the item itself or by way of a donation to our wish list fund. We will issue you a tax receipt for your donation, and your name will be displayed on our Oxford “Giving Tree” on the first floor of the school.

All donations are appreciated whether you are able to donate a book, a classroom globe or a complete science room.  Everyone will be equally acknowledged on our “Giving Tree”.  This is a wonderful way to enhance your child’s education and show thanks to your child’s teachers!

Sincere thanks from the Oxford School Advisory Council

For more information or to make a donation please contact Don Reardon at 421-6763           (dreardon@hrsb.ns.ca)
