Dodgeball Inter-School Competition
Well done to our very keen Year 5/6 team who represented our school at Newbridge High School on the 29th November 2016. We came third out of our pool of four teams and we were delighted to be awarded The Spirit of the Games award for positive attitude and respect shown to others! Have a look at our cheery faces in the photos above!
We are keen to recruit more runners! Thank you to Madison W, Brodie, Dylan and James for always coming along to support Oakthorpe. Miss Gillies loves the enthusiasm you show for taking part and getting the chance to buy a bacon cob afterwards! Even if you missed an event you can still come along to the next.
