VIP Visitor at Olsen House
At the end of the Summer Term, Olsen had a surprise from a former pupil who wanted to share his good news with the school.
OC attended Olsen from Y8 to Y11 and left with a number of qualifications. When he came to the school he was supposed to have 3-1 support in class and had an immense dislike of school. By the end of the first half term he had settled so well he was full time in a class without any additional support.
In between school and FE college he attended the young citizenship residential scheme and passed with flying colours and Head Teacher Alison Ford and Deputy Paul O’Brien went to see his graduation.
He went on to FE college in the area in which he lived and completed a foundation year. Since then he has just finished a 26 week Royal Marine training course and passed. He came in the top 3 in his class. 30 participants started the course and only 7 finished.
OC spent time in school as a visitor and talked with the children about working hard and always giving your best.
