School Council Update

Monday, February 9th, 2009

This is the second update from the school council bloggers. 

Mrs Langford was invited to the mayor’s parlour on 27th January 2009. She accompanied 2 school councillors – James and Danielle – to claim the healthy schools award which took 4 years of effort to get.

Also we at Oakwood are hoping to start a school banking system, if it is approved. The councillors asked their classes if they would like it and many said yes, although some year 6’s said no as they already have a bank account and will be moving up to secondary school in September.

This will be updated every Monday (during term time!)

The dove with ‘feathery’ legs

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

Since we came back from our Christmas holiday we have noticed that one of our doves has feathery legs. We don’t know if it is a new dove or if one of our own doves has grown feathery legs to keep warm during winter. We’ll see what happens in spring!

Eco Troopers Update

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

The Eco Troopers have finally been able to get busy and active around the school grounds now that the weather is warming up a little!  We have  embarked  on a new project,  in upper school courtyard, chopping down some of the vegetation that has grown and spread a little large over the years. We are also covering over the pond to create more of a garden area. We will keep you updated with our progress.
