Speech Day & Prize Giving 2024

We enjoyed celebrating the year with our annual Speech Day and Prize Giving. It took place in a marquee on the field which was full to the brim with pupils, staff, family, and friends.

The guest speaker this year was Tony Miller, MBE, who is the Director of Whitechapel Mission. Mr. Miller presented the awards to our pupils for their achievements throughout the year before explaining the essential support the Whitechapel Mission gives to countless individuals who are homeless and vulnerable.

Oaklands were very proud of the pupils who were elected to give reports of their year, which included class highlights and charity reports. We also enjoyed a performance from our fabulous Orchestra and Year 5 & 6 gave us a lively rendition of two songs from their production of Ali Baba & the Bongo Bandits.

In addition to the awards, Mrs Copeman also announced the Year 6 Roles of Responsibility for the next school year.

Well done to everyone who won a prize, but all of our children should be very proud of their progress this year.
