There are a number of parents who have expressed an interest in forming a new Parent Teacher Association (PTA) for the School. Some parents will remember it previously as Friends of Ousedale (FOO).
The idea is to launch a new PTA, under a new name, in September that will be run by a small committee of parents and a school representative. The focus will be on fund raising and we anticipate organising at least three events a year.
Initially we would like to hear from any parents, across both campuses, who may be interested in being part of the committee, or would be willing to help with fund raising events. If we have enough responses, we would envisage holding an information evening to enable interested parents the opportunity to find out more about the new PTA and its proposed role.
If you are interested could you please contact Mr S. Glover by e-mail at the school e-mail address (shown at the bottom of this page) or via reception/switchboard at either campus.
Last week Mrs Carbert outlined in this blog how Ousedale had been successful in winning the Unisixthformity Challenge and achieving a Silver Award for embracing democracy.
This week I am proud to announce that Ousedale School have won the Sport MK, Sports Achiever of the Year – Secondary School Award. This is recognition of, not only the individual and team success within the school, but also all of those students who attend and participate in extra-curricular clubs as well as those who are encouraged to develop excellence beyond the school day.
In addition, Leah Williamson in Year 9 has also been awarded the Sport MK, Sports Achiever of the Year – U18 Girls Award. This recognises Leah’s contribution to sport at Ousedale School , where she is particularly influential in our success in both football and cross country. It also acknowledges Leah’s commitment and dedication beyond school. Leah is a key member in her age group at Arsenal Ladies Football Club and in the past year has had the honour of being England U15 captain. She achieves this whilst maintaining an outstanding attendance and achievement record in her studies and we congratulate her unreservedly on this achievement.
Year 10 and 11 played host to Mrs A Waterhouse from Willen Hospice in assembly on 28th February, 2011. She was invited in to receive a cheque on behalf of the school. This followed an amazing effort by students in Charities Week with all sorts of fund-raising activities happening. The result was that we were able to give a staggering £2120.00 to the Hospice this year!
Students were told that Willen Hospice does great work and that only 25% of the 4 million pounds it costs to run comes from the NHS – all the rest comes from charitable donations and events such as Ousedale’s. The cheque was presented by Emmett and Hannah in Year 11 and was gratefully received. Congratulations to all students and staff who made this possible.
