Ovingham Middle School would like to invite you to join us in celebrating the musical and performing achievements of our students on Tuesday 9th July from 6-7pm in the gym at Ovingham Middle School.
Pupils involved will need to be back at school in school uniform for 5.30pm but not before please as there will not be staff on duty to supervise.
Although we are not selling tickets for this event, there will be a bucket for you to make any donations you feel appropriate.
This will be a short informal event without an interval and we look forward to seeing you.
From Wednesday this week, no more books will be issued out of the library. This is to allow us to get all the books in and checked against the system. Can you please encourage your child to finish and return their library books ASAP.
Next week, the librarians and reading ambassadors will be coming round all the form classes to chase up any outstanding books.
Thank you for your support.
A big well done to all the pupils who took part; they represented the school brilliantly. And a special thanks must go to Mrs Watkins from Corbridge for organising and running the event. The next one is already being pencilled in!
On Wednesday the 26th of June OMS pupils made history!
Four pupils from year 8 took on a huge challenge; to compete against twelve other schools in a regional robotics competition. Our pupils had just 4 days to build a robot using the VEX IQ robot kit. The competition involved 5 tasks that would test the pupil’s robot, driving skills and programming skills. In two out of the five take our pupils came out top and they scored highly in the remaining three tasks. The result? OMS brought home the win! For their supreme efforts the pupils were awarded a prize of an expansion pack for their robot kit and the pride and kudos of beating so many schools with so little preparation time.
Well done everyone involved.
The KS3 cricket fixture against Ponteland Middle School tomorrow night (25th June) has been cancelled.
We will let you know of the re-arranged date in due course.
Be part of the OMS team!
We are seeking to appoint 2 enthusiastic lunchtime supervisors to support our busy lunch period. Please follow the link below for further details.
