VE Day 75th Anniversary Commemoration @ OAC

VE Day 75th Anniversary Commemoration @ OAC

Staff and students have commemorated the 75th anniversary of VE Day in a very different way to what had been planned. Instead of a big 'street party' at the Academy, we have all shared our individual celebrations to create a virtual party; coming together whilst apart.

OAC received a letter from the Mayor of Croydon, who would have been attending our celebrations at the Academy on Thursday 7th May, you can click here to read his message to students.

Students have shared with us images from their own home celebrations, decorations, and baking. They have also completed work set in a variety of subjects all themed on World War II and VE Day. We have been blown away by the quality of some of the work completed.

We are therefore delighted to share with you this slideshow film of all of their efforts.
