Thank you from everyone at The Oaks for your patience and support during this difficult term. We hope you all have a lovely summer and look forward to seeing all of our pupils back in September. Year 7s start on Thursday 3rd September and all other year groups return on Monday 7th September.
I am delighted to share the news that the following pupils achieved their Duke of Edinburgh Silver Award this year in spite of COVID lockdown.
Huge congratulations to you all. You have all worked SO hard to complete your outstanding sections in very difficult conditions. Everyone at The Oaks is so proud of your achievement :-).
We want to wish all our Silver group leavers the very best for their futures whatever they go onto do next.
Remember, your DofE achievements will stand you in good stead on your CV’s. Potential employers really value this qualification so be sure to tell them all about it !
I have MORE good news too!
For this year only, The Duke of Edinburgh Scheme introduced a special Certificate of Achievement for all participants who managed to complete the Volunteering, Physical and Skills sections of their award but were unable to complete their expedition due to COVID restrictions.
I am therefore delighted (again) to share with you the following pupils that have achieved this certificate 🙂
Tristan, Thomas, Evie, Joshua, Decan, Kayla Jack M, Joseph O, Kenzie
Huge congratulations to you all.
Katelyn & Courtney decided they would like to create a piece of art each that used some recycled products in their last week of term together in school. Both did a fantastic job and were really pleased with the end results..
A lovely flower piece Courtney made using old plastic water bottles
Well done Katelyn – your desert scene is fabulous 🙂
