Purple Oaks Official Opening
Friday 9th March saw the official opening of Purple Oaks Academy.
Over 70 guests including our local MP, Michael Ellis, members of the Greenwood Academy Trust central team, representatives from the building contractors GFTomlinsons and project managers Gleeds along with the ESFA joined us to celebrate the offical opening of Purple Oaks Academy. Parents and the Academy Advisory Council were represented and most importantly our students joined the occassion.
Formal speeches were followed by a video showing the unveiling of a plaque to mark the occassion. Guests then had the opportunity to enjoy refreshments in our dining room and have a tour of the new facilities. Students enjoyed a relaxed, party afternoon in their classrooms and each had a party bag to take home including a slice of our cake.
Guests were invited to donate a non-fiction book to our new library and we were overwhelmed with everyone's generosity.
Please take a look at our video to see what went on.
