Interactive Floor Projector

The Friends of The Oaks School arranged to have a demonstration of an interactive floor projector. The Friends have been saving money and submitting grant applications to raise enough funds to buy the equipment. Today everyone had great fun trying out the projector. We splashed in puddles and chased Autumn leaves. Here are Matthew and Brandon exploring the picture technology.

Boxford visit

A group of year 10 and 11 students travelled a total of 200 miles in one day in order to visit Boxford Ltd at a factory near Huddersfield. We saw some amazing equipment that produces machines like ours in the workshop. All the staff were extremely friendly and stopped to explain how things were manufactured and finished. Many thanks to Howard and Steve who took us around the building and looked after us. They answered hundreds of questions but we forgot one. Can we come again?
