St Oswald's CE Primary School:
250th Birthday Heritage Project
2021 marks the 250th birthday of St Oswald's Primary School and after all the challenges of the last year, we are hoping to celebrate the occasion by making it really special for our children, staff, families and our wider community.
One of the many celebratory projects we are working on is to restore the original foundation stones of the school from 1771 and 1846. We will display the stones in a new heritage seating space which will feature a newly carved and engraved date stone to reference the 250th anniversary. The area will feature bench seating, time capsule and a replanted garden. The bench will also incorporate tiles that will be designed and created by the children in collaboration with a local artist.
We have received some very generous donations towards the project from local businesses, trades people and the Fulford and Heslington Ward. We do, however, still have a shortfall of funding and with your support we hope to be able to fully fund the project so that the new space can be built over the summer holidays, ready for the celebration in September.
We know there are many excellent causes that need your help at the moment, but if this is a project you feel you would like to support, any donation would be very gratefully received.
Many thanks for your continued support
