We hope you enjoy our Oaklands Christmas Winter Walk video montage. We’ve collected photos and videos during this term’s performing arts session showing some of the elements of the session, exploring, dance, music and drama. The first section sets the scene of the story and then we tell the story of our journey. Look out for your ‘young person’ and the wonderful ways our young people communicate Christmas wishes at the end.
We are absolutely delighted to let you know that a group of pupils at Oaklands have won the award for ‘Most Impactful Film’ as part of the Edinburgh and Lothians Schools Film Competition.
The Oaklands film, Who We Are, made as part of our Our Edinburgh programme last year was enrolled into this year’s Edinburgh and Lothians Schools Film Competition, which runs as part of the Edinburgh International Festival.
The film was made by Beech and Spruce Classes and their staff teams and explored life in Edinburgh for young people at Oaklands.
You can watch the short film by following the link below.
We were so sad to say goodbye to our wonderful Music Meg yesterday as she moves on to her next adventure, closer to home, in Devon.
Meg’s influence and talent has impacted on all our lives over the last three years and we will miss her so much.
From our first ever Oaklands School choir and their performances at the Queen’s Hall, to wonderful projects on The Lion King with Disney and the world’s most insanely catchy tunes, which are heard ringing out from every classroom at Oaklands!
Meg, THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!
In true Meg style, she’s left us with a song, which we thought you might enjoy.
