Dance student inspires school to support Naomi House

Oakmoor school

Oakmoor Secondary School in Bordon, Hampshire, have been supporting Naomi House & Jacksplace since 2009, when it was previously known as Mill Chase. The relationship began when Mrs Hale taught a student who was supported by Naomi House & Jacksplace.

Even though the student was informed that she wouldn’t be able to dance, her determination and passion for dance pushed her to defy all odds, and she competed in many dance competitions, including the school's talent show.

She amazed everyone with her determination to dance and succeed.

— Mrs Hale, Leader of Red House

Her determination and the way her family spoke so highly of the support and care they received from our hospices motivated everyone at Oakmoor School to support Naomi House & Jacksplace.

Throughout the years, the school have hosted numerous activities for the students to get involved with to raise money for our charity, including selling roses on Valentine's Day, selling Christmas cards and even hosting netball and benchball tournaments. Mr Gashi, Teacher of Physical Education at Oakmoor School, has gone all out for the students this year, even running an X-Box competition!

When asked why the school feel it’s important for the students to support a charity, Mrs Hale said:

It is important for children to understand the value in helping and supporting others. Making others happy in life is one of the best qualities a person can have. It enriches your life as well as that of others.

— Mrs Hale
