Term 6 Spectacular Start!


To celebrate our 125th birthday every class visited Sevington Victorian School to see what school life would have been like when our own school opened in 1893. Discipline and noise levels were very different, not to mention the different way that girls and boys were treated. Our girls made lavender bags and polished household brass and copper, whilst the boys made bees wax candles and weeded the vegetable patch. Even at lunch time they were treated differently as boys and girls ate and played separately. 

We ended the year with our very own OPJ-Estival! We celebrated our history and the arts across our school. Individual and whole class performances took place throughout the day.
