Lower School Production

This week the children in Years 3 and 4 have performed their end of term show, ‘Christmas at the Movies’. Classes worked  in pairs to perform scenes from ‘The Snowman’, ‘The Polar Express’, ‘On Christmas Eve’ and ‘Father Christmas’. They were involved in every stage of the production process and all the staff are incredibly proud of them. Thank you to all the staff for all the hard work and enthusiasm as well as Neil Elliott who once again provided us with a fantastic lighting rig to illuminate our performances. Thanks also to the audiences for being so supportive, the hall was packed  for all four performances and we are delighted that you all seemed to enjoy it so much. To make  it possible for everyone to attend, rather than charge for tickets we are suggesting that voluntary donations be made via the school to Great Ormond Street hospital and Helen House Oxford, both of which are currently very important to  us a lower school community.

Well done again to everyone for all four fantastic performances.

Children in Need 2015

On Friday 13th November the school celebrated Children in Need. In addition to holding a mufti day the children in Years 5 and 6 organised stalls in the hall which were the rest of the children were able to attend. As always, the children did a fantastic job of rising to the challenge and organising themselves and the children loved visiting all the different stalls. Thanks to everyone involved for their ongoing support of fundraising events at OMS and we look forward to announcing the final total soon.

OMS Food Bank

Next week (12th-16th October) Olney Middle School will be collecting their annual contribution to Milton Keynes Food Bank. If the equivalent of every child were to bring in just one item, that would make a huge difference to some families that need support in our local area. We are always incredibly grateful for the way this important event is supported so thank you  in advance for your  donations. Every child should have taken the list of urgent and desirable items home but they would particularly appreciate long life juice/milk, spread (eg jam), cup a soup/noodles, rice pudding (tinned), vegetables (tinned), spaghetti (tinned), fruit (tinned), tuna  (tinned) and biscuits. Thank you again for helping us to support this local initiative and we look forward to seeing a stage full of supplies!

Minon of the Week

At Olney Middle School we work hard as a community to ensure that all our behaviour embodies the principles of ‘Ready, Respectful, Safe’ and that our words, choices and actions reflect the core values which are found at the heart of any successful school. In recognition of this, we have decided to appoint a ‘Minion of the Week’. These children, along with many others, are shining examples of these values and are exemplary ambassadors for our school community.

School Council Election Results

This afternoon we announced the winners of the school council elections in a special assembly hosted by the mayor.  All the children that took part were an absolute credit to themselves and we know that for those children not elected there will be lots of other opportunities for them to use their talents to contribute to life at the school. Well done to those that were elected, we are looking forward to working with you!P1330836 P1330838

Visit to the Houses of Parliament

12 children from the school council, accompanied by three adults, had the opportunity to visit the Houses of Parliament. They saw many historic sites on the way. Upon arriving at  the Houses of Parliament they had a fascinating tour, including the rare opportunity to go inside the House of Commons and House of Lords. Their behaviour was excellent and they were a credit to themselves and the school.
