Our first Shine Day of the year, which was back in February, seems like a very long time ago now! I’m currently working with lots of different members of staff to plan the remaining three Shine Days, to ensure that all students have an exciting, meaningful experience.At the end of June, all Key Stage 3 students will spend two days working on different projects under the theme of sustainability. The diverse range of activities includes exploring alternative forms of power and transport and (my favourite) recycling old clothes and bits of rubbish to produce and model some new outfits; I’m looking forward to the fashion show that’s part of this project! Year 10 students will be having an enterprising two days as they devise and present their own ‘Tsunami Relief’ campaign. They’ll be looking at how different organisations raise funds, devise their own campaign and then perform or film the results.
Last week we received two pieces of excellent news: Excellent Functional Maths Skills results in Year 10 and success in the Young Enterprise area competition.
79.3% of Year 10 students who took the Level 2 test passed and 15 students gained full marks.
Ousedale companies Waxycans, Jigframes and Akira-shi were made up of over thirty of our year 12 students. They achieved considerable success at the MK competition earlier in the year and won 5 awards!
Only two Milton Keynes teams went through to the Buckinghamshire final, Waxycans from Ousedale and Jeffree from Hazeley School.
The Waxycans team were Susan McGivern, Lucy Marven-Dawes, Anna Swindells, Lily Scowen, Beth Peach, Sarah Gould, Freya Wilson, Emily Ramsden, Kim Smith, Amanda Loader and Emma Davies. They performed brilliantly and won 2 awards - Best Company Report and Overall Runners Up.
Dear Parents/ Carers
On Wednesday 8th June 7.00 – 8.15 pm we plan to hold our third Parent Focus meeting of the year at the Olney Campus. The topic for discussion is ‘What information do I require to support my child with their progress at school?’
As you will know I introduced these meetings at the start of my Headship at Ousedale in order to provide parents with an opportunity to discuss matters which are undergoing development at the school. The first meeting of the year provided opportunity for you to input into our new website. At the second meeting we explored academy status and in this meeting we are looking at information you would find useful to judge if your child is making good progress at the school. I do hope you can find time to attend; we shall be using technology to support us and therefore numbers are restricted to 60. Please complete the form on line to secure your place.
Kindest regardsSue Carbert
