Students from Olney campus helped at Olney's annual pancake race on Tuesday, 22nd February. Some of our GCSE Food Technology students were able to put their skills to the test, helping to cook pancakes, or making and selling refreshments. Other students helped sell programmes, took photographs of the event and a couple were helping the radio network, MK FM. The weather was kind, providing a beautifully clear sky, without being bitterly cold.
The event was really well attended by local schools with twelve children's races; the Ousedale contingent from Year 7 ran in the final two races. Both races were closely run affairs, with Tara Lewis winning the girls' race and James Houghton, the boys. All the children who participated took away a souvenir from the event ranging from small frying pans to aprons and headscarves which had been donated by Dupont, one of the main sponsors of the event.
Congratulations to Madeleine Hamilton, Joshua Rose, Alex Colson, Kieran Gould, Sarah Gould and Toby Holden (pictured from left to right) who all performed the ‘ Leonore Overture’ no.3 Op.72b by Beethoven in a ‘side by side’ concert arranged by Milton Keynes Music Service. Students performed the overture in a live concert alongside the professional Milton Keynes Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Sian Edwards (pictured above) at Milton Keynes Theatre, giving each student the taste of life as a professional musician. Thanks must go to the Music Service staff for their time and dedication in organising the project.
