Cookery and Gardening Club »

To celebrate the opening of their Durham store, Wilkinsons donated £200 of vouchers to our cookery and gardening club.  Some Wilkinsons staff and a photographer came along to one of the club sessions and some photographs were taken.  Wilkinsons intend to send these, along with a press release, to local newspapers.  If you spot one of the articles, please let us know!

World Book Day »

Thursday 3rd January 2011 was World Book Day. Pupils and staff at St Oswald’s came dressed as characters from books (and some from television shows and films). We held a special assembly and the children had to work out who the staff were dressed as. Lots of other book related activities took place in the classrooms. Everyone had a fantastic day and went home with a special book token. Remember to exchange your token before Sunday 27th March 2011! (more…)
