Oakley School does Dragon Boat Racing!
Saturday 9th September was the Dragon Boat Race at Bewl Water and with the support of the Rotary Club, Oakley School entered a team of 1980's movie characters to compete against 59 other teams and, mostly importantly, fundraise! It was a beautiful sunny day, which meant that we could dry out in between races and when it did finally rain, we were already on our way home! Despite our best efforts, we didn't make the final but our best time was 1m 27s which we felt was perfectly respectable. It was a long day but we had a lot of fun and most importantly, hopefully raised a lot of money for Oakley School. Thank you to everyone who supported and sponsored us, thank you to the Rotary Club and to everyone (staff, governors and family members) who rowed on the day.
