An Open Day like no other!

An Open Day like no other!

Oakhouse Vocational Academy welcomed Grade 5, 6 and 7 learners from Glenoaks to spend an entire day with Year 1 to Year 5 learners and Staff at the Academy. Many cool activities were very well planned and organized from Woodwork and Gardening to Hospitality, Enterprise and World Knowledge. These are subjects offered at the Academy and the Glenoaks learners spent the day as an Academy learner learning new information and skills and completed tasks set out by the amazing Academy staff and their assistants who were the Academy learners. In Woodwork, they made string hearts, in Gardening they made infused oils and planted their own succulents and in Hospitality they followed a recipe and baked delicious rolls. When it came to Enterprise, the learners printed a school logo on their own folder and in World Knowledge, the learners engaged in meaningful discussions about our country with the use of technology. At the end of the day, all the learners and staff were treated to an ‘Eat and Chill’ session where burgers (made with the rolls baked at Hospitality!) were served as a perfect end to a magical day! Learners from Glenoaks gained valuable insight about the mission, objectives and importance of the Academy. The Academy learners were wonderful hosts and assistants and they learnt how to impart their knowledge and skills to their younger peers. Tolerance and acceptance for differences, strengths and difficulties were shared and we hope to continue building this relationship and bond between our two great facilities, Glenoaks School and Oakhouse Vocational Academy. Mrs Anderson and Mrs Habib, thank you for making the scrumptious burgers and thank you to Mrs Wood, Mr Leo, Mr Wessels, Arlene W, Miss L, Miss Da Silva, Mrs Leo, Mrs Wessels, Mrs Edinburgh and Zanele, our Academy Staff, for opening your doors to create this meaningful learning and life-long experience. #OakhouseVocationalAcademy #OpenDay #Woodwork #Gardening #Hospitality #Enterprise #WorldKnowledge #Burgers
