OBA on­line mem­o­ries

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

TEACH­ERS mov­ing into a new multi-mil­lion pound build­ing have urged past pupils to con­trib­ute mem­o­ries for an on­line time cap­sule.

Or­mis­ton Bush­field Academy will move into their state of-the-art £20.6 mil­lion de­vel­op­ment on July 9.

To mark a 50-day count­down, school chiefs to­day urged past staff and stu­dents to sub­mit their mem­o­ries of the old Bush­field School build­ing, which opened in 1978.

Prin­ci­pal Eric Win­stone, who was a PE teacher and head of house when the school opened, said: “This is cer­tainly one of the most ex­cit­ing times in the school’s his­tory.

“But we must not for­get that the old school build­ing has played host to some fan­tas­tic mem­o­ries since 1978. We want to give both build­ings the cel­e­bra­tions they de­serve.”

They have urged peo­ple to con­trib­ute by adding #bush­field­mem­o­ries or @Obapeter­bor­oughon to Tweets, writ­ing on the ‘Or­mis­ton Bush­field Academy Alumni’ Face­book page and send­ing emails to mem­o­ries@ bush­field.co.uk.

Mr Win­stone added: “I am very much look­ing for­ward to see­ing the mem­o­ries on Twit­ter and wel­com­ing some of the first stu­dents back for the next great­est mo­ment – the open­ing of the new academy.”

The 10 great­est mo­ments will then be re­vealed over the 10 days lead­ing up to the of­fi­cial han­dover.

Pupils from 1978 can sign up to at­tend­ing July’s open­ing cer­e­mony and be the first mem­bers of the public to tour the new build­ing.

To ap­ply, send an email to Mau­reen.roberts@bush­field.co.uk.
