Year 7 students got us all in the mood for Easter by taking part in the first Ounsdale High School Great MFL Bake Off. From macarons to Spanish themed cup cakes, French parmiers biscuits, French flags made of icing sugar, gooey pineapple cake to German apple cake and lots of edible glitter! A fantastic array of creativity, baking skills and above all excellent effort.
All competitors received a certificate and a WOW work and the 4 winners recieved Easter eggs.
And not only were our Y7’s stars but the whole event was managed by a small group of Y9 & Y10 students who used their enthusiasm and excellent organisational skills to create a very memorable occasion. Thanks also go to our judges who had the difficult task of choosing our winners.
Congratulations to Alfie Thistle, Daisy Aston, Dominique Mill-Klee and Layla Causer.
A huge thank you to all students staff and parents for donating to the food appeal. Good Shepherd Ministries came today to collect the food and were very grateful for what they received.
We are so proud of year 9 student Noah Sandland for representing Staffordshire Schools in the English Schools Cross Country Championships recently. The course was tough and the conditions were bad and despite him being ill just prior, he gave it 110% and ran a great first half of the race . He finished a respectful 304 out of 350 of the fastest 13/14 yr olds in the country which is amazing!!
During the weeks commencing 1st April and 8th April Mrs Blake is organising our annual Food Appeal. This is the 7th year Ounsdale will be giving back to the community by collecting donations of food for those in need in Wolverhampton.
We are asking that each pupil brings in at least one tin of food during the two weeks before Easter; these will be collected during tutor time and taken to Good Shepherd Ministries in Wolverhampton who on an average day feed 200 people.
