Calling past pupils of Oakwood School

PAST pupils of Oakwood School near Chichester are invited to some special events taking place to mark the school’s centenary year.

On Saturday, June 16 the school is holding an Edwardian Olympics event from 11am-3pm and there will also be a summer fair.

The day will feature an exhibition of research and artwork by current pupils about the past 100 years, putting the school’s history into a wider context. Regional news presenter Fred Dinenage will also plant a commemorative tree.

On Sunday, July 15 the school will hold its Founders’ Day which is a chance for former pupils to return to the school and take a tour, meet up with other former pupils and enjoy lunch before attending a special service at St Mary’s (Sennicotts) Chapel.

The school has also delved into the history books and is putting together a magazine. It would still like to hear from any past pupils who have memories or any memorabilia.

The school has also invited Chichester MP Andrew Tyrie to plant a tree in the grounds on June 1 as part of the celebrations.

For more information about attending the events contact admissions and marketing manager Sarah Mayhead on 01243 575209.
