Windale Primary School

This is a long-term project with Windale Community Primary School, which draws its pupils from the economically deprived suburb of Blackburn Leys in Oxford.

Several Weidenfeld Scholars (Alexandra Adegoke, Marius Chirila, Maria Jayaraj, Irem Kok, Tamar Kvantaliani, Rhett Larson, Farida Makar, Dominique Shure and Rebecca Weissburg) have participated in the endeavour which has involvedĀ the restoration of a garden and planting of allotments for growing produce.

The idea behind the initiative is to encourage the children to understand the link between efforts made and results yielded, with a view to developing links between the Scholars and the community and thus establishing a basis for a broader mentoring programme in future.
