I am delighted to inform you that, after an intense round of interviews, we have appointed Anna Tholen and Sam Gorf Head Girl and Head Boy for 2013-2014.
We thank everyone for their excellent applications which made deciding so difficult. We hope all those who applied will continue to play an active role in the Sixth Form of Ousedale School.
On Monday 23rd July, Alison Waterhouse from Willen Hospice came into the Year 9 and 10 assembly at the Olney Campus. Alison was presented with a cheque for over £2,000 which had been raised by Ousedale students during charities week.
Alison talked to the students about the valuable work which is done by the Hospice and her gratitude for donations, such as the one from Ousedale, which help to keep the institution running. She explained the importance of providing care not only for those who were nearing the ends of their lives but also of providing respite care so that families are able to have a break from caring for unwell relatives. Patients at Willen range from 18 years of age upwards and the Hospice provides a variety of activities like art and music therapy in a tranquil and beautiful setting on the edge of Willen Lake.
We were delighted to be able to support the Hospice with the efforts of our pupils.

Many students had a chance to represent their forms in this year’s Sports Day finals in a competitive, yet fun and exciting day. Students had taken part in heats in PE lessons leading up to the finals and if successful, qualified to represent their form group. This year we added new events: the 300m and 1500m and the triple jump, giving the opportunity for new records to be set. Many long standing records were broken - Molly Adams 8NMG broke the long jump record which was set in 1979 by jumping a distance of 4.51m and Lee Westley broke two school records on the day in the 100m and 200m. Lee broke a record in the 200m which had been held since 1982 with a time of 24.7 seconds. However, the most spectacular achievement of the day was his 100m record. Lee ran a time of 10.97 seconds which is a superb achievement.
Each year we award special awards for students who recorded the most outstanding performances across two year groups. Congratulations to these well deserved winners:
Junior Victrix Ludorum (YR7 & 8 Girl) - Molly AdamsJunior Victor Ludorum (YR7 & 8 Boy) - Vaughn WatsonSenior Victrix Ludorum (YR9 & 10 Girl) - Leah WhiteSenior Victor Ludorum (YR9 & 10 Boy) - Lee Westley
It is a fantastic achievement that at some point either in the qualifying heats or the finals day that nearly all students in Years 7-9 have taken part in at least one track or field event. The finals day was superb and the crowd generated an atmosphere that was both energetic and supportive of our athletes. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all staff and sixth formers that made the day possible by helping to officiate the events. A more detailed report of the day's events will appear in the July edition of Ousenews due out on 19th July.
