Oakfield Academy Fundraisers would like to thank the Extra Life Video Game Bar in Badcox for the fabulous prizes they donated to us for our Pokémon event which was held at the Academy on 19.5.17 after school. The pupils joined in swap zones, battle bases and tournaments or watched Pokémon episodes on the big screen on the stage. In total this raised a wonderful £296 for the fundraisers and will be added to the current project fund which is to refurbish to pupils toilets.
Year 6 will be holding a cake sale at break time on Thursday 25th May to raise money for Year 6 activities.
Please note that week commencing 22.5.17 there will not be any homework clubs running for KS3 pupils due to exams taking place.
After school film club will be showing 'The Boxtrolls' (PG).
Update on Ted's progress He is now the South West winner of the Royal Mail Christmas Stamp competition. He is now down to the final 22 out of 205,00 entries across the whole of Great Britain. The Prince of Wales himself is choosing the two winners ( for the 1st and 2nd class stamps) As a finalist Ted has won £500 for himself and £500 for the school. Well done Ted this is absolutely fantastic. In January the whole of KS2 were given the challenge to design a Christmas Stamp for the Royal mail Christmas Stamp completion. The two winners will have their stamp design used on the 2017 Christmas stamps. Out of more than 205,000 entries from across the country, there were 120 finalists and we are delighted to say that Ted Lewis-Clark in year 6 has made it to the finals in the South West category. He is now in the running to win the regional final ( and £500 for himself and £500 for the school) and hopefully the grand final (Stamp produced to go on sale and a £1000 prize). The standard of artwork from our KS2 pupils alone was outstanding but to become a finalist in a nationwide completion is indeed an achievement. We will keep you posted regarding the final outcome at the end of June. Well done Ted.
This weeks after school film club will be showing The Jungle Book (U).
Please note that all future individual parent letters regarding attendance issues including term time leave, will be sent to parent cares via email. As this will gradually become the preferred method of communication from Oakfield Academy, we would ask that all parents inform the office of any change or update of personal contact details.
