All kind donations of cakes gratefully received and some of our students will be helping to sell them. 
 
Many of us are affected by knowing someone who has suffered from cancer and we are hoping to make this event the best ever to support Macmillian.
 
Please send cake donations to the Hub before Friday morning, thank you in advance.

Student Leadership Team

Since returning to school we have offered students the chance to become part of our Student Leadership Team.  We have received a phenomenal amount of applications in all areas and want to say well done to each and every student who put themselves forward.

On Monday we welcomed Madam Mayor of Cheshire East into school who along side Mrs Abberley and Mrs Lockett conducted formal interviews of all applicants.  We are pleased to announce that Martyna Rogozinska and Jayden Jones have been selected to represent The Oaks Academy as our Head Students.

We have now recruited a team of 27 KS4 Prefects and  20 KS3 Student Council members.  These students are going to lead the way for developing Student Voice in key strategic areas and we are delighted to be working with them.  All those recruited should be extremely proud of the important position they hold within our academy.

Star of the Week

Well Done Mrs Whittaker and Miss Byron!

Last weekend Mrs Whittaker and Miss Byron ran amongst 56,000 people running in The Great North Run.  They both completed in the same time of 2:30:26. Well done!

They are very grateful of all the support received and have raised over £2500 which is fantastic!

They are raising money for Christies at Macclesfield.  If you would like to know more please visit Lisa’s JustGiving Page.

Thank You Morrisons

Many thanks to Morrisons for their very generous donation to our school allotment. We received a range of seeds to plant, which we will benefit from next year. Mel Jones, our head gardener, was thrilled with the gift, especially the dwarf sunflowers.
