This was taken from the latest Oakmeeds newsletter :-
For each full week your child attended College last term, their name was placed in the Christmas
end of term draw. For those with 100% attendance, this resulted in them having their names in
the draw fourteen times and every student had the opportunity to be in the draw at least once.
Thanks to the generosity of the Burgess Hill Business Parks Association, we
were able to purchase a Kindle Paperwhite for each Year group as their main prize.
The lucky winners of the Kindle’s were:-
Year 7 Harrison Wallond
Year 8 Lauren Cox
Year 9 Hannah Crouch
Year 10 Jack Woodford
Year 11 Stephanie Le Pape
Congratulations to the winners, and indeed all our students, for their efforts to keep their
College attendance at a high level. The next end of term draw will take place just before the
Easter break. The main prizes are yet to be decided – any ideas your child may have
should be voiced to Mrs Bland, our Attendance Manager, or their Tutor.
Should any parents/carers know of any local business that might like to sponsor these
upcoming awards, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Bland, who would be only too
pleased to discuss this with you.

"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business.
