Open evening – part 2

Many thanks to all the families who came along to Our Lady’s last night, despite the atrocious weather.

Over 200 people toured the school to view our facilities, meet the staff and find out more about the school.

Activities included having a go with the computerised embroidery sewing machines in Home Economics which were already set up and running so that P7s could see some designs. Visitors also had the chance to operate the ordinary sewing machines, trying to follow a line on a sheet. Mums reminisced about their own Home Economics classes while the Dads complained that they never had the chance to do Home Economics at school at all.

Various resources were on show in the Library Resource Centre, including our famous Roman helmet, used for the Ninth Legion investigation, examples of mindmapping and rebus puzzles, Comic Life software and our course, our blog, Our Lady’s Latest.

The PE department set up gymnastics displays, while Art and Design showed off screen printing techniques.
