Junior County Badminton Tournament
A number of Oatlands Juniors pupils took part in a county level badminton tournament last weekend representing Harrogate Racquets Club. The under 11 girls’ teams were particularly successful with the A team coming in second and the B team coming in a close 3rd. The only team to beat them was Sheffield whose team included county and international players. The U11 girls A team included Millie Adrian-Horrocks and the U11 B team included Jemima Kingston and Winnie McKenzie. Anthony McEnally played in the U11 boys team for the club, which although not being placed, should be commended for positive attitude. It is great that there is such talent within the school.Mrs T Kingston
Bed Race 2019
OJS once again took part in the Knaresborough Bed Race. Well done to the runners who were placed tenth out of 90 beds. Thank you to our OJS Arts Club who painted the bed to fit this year's theme of 'Yorkshire' and to all the pupils who made a flower each. Two OJS staff joined the event as marshalls and enjoyed the inclement weather as much as the racing!
Our First Pretty Muddy!
On Saturday 14th July, Abigail, Yasmin and Leila did a mud run on the stray. Leila and Abigail started the race at 9:45 and Yasmin started at 10:00am. The race was 5K and it was very tiring but worth it. Leila was raising money in memory of her mum’s cousin and Yasmin was raising money for her Dad’s friend. A huge amount of money was raised for Cancer Research on the day. Leila and Yasmin’s favourite obstacle was the slide at the end. WE LOVED IT!

Ella Collyer and Toby Weiland were invited to train with Judy Murray at Harrogate Raquets Club. They both enjoyed this wonderful opportunity, showing off their tennis talents and learning new skills from Judy. She has certianly inspired our budding tennis stars. One day she might meet them again, but as Wimbledon competitors!Miss Weir
