Exciting times

It’s hard to contain the excitement around the school this week as the big crane has arrived  and and straight behind it the first lorries carrying the pre-cast internal walls.  Ten minutes after the crane had set up the first section was in place.

Some classes had a great view as section by section the ground floor walls begin to stand tall and proud and the school begins to take on a reality never before experienced.  By Christmas it is hoped that the roof will be ready to be put on.
This is a day/week the children will remember for all of their lives.
Your patience would be appreciated while we take on a new shape.
Team Ollies

Our ‘Book Buzz’ Logo reveal…

 

 

I thought of a hive. When I was younger I used to help my nana when she worked in a shop called ‘The Honey Pot’. Their logo was a beehive. I always wondered what was in the beehive. In this case, I thought it was a library full of books. I was going to write authors on the hive but I could only fit my favourite authors so it wouldn’t have been interesting to others. I put the school crest as the door to the hive to show it is St Oliver Plunkett’s. There are 10 bees around the hive to show my age and that we are busy with books. This is the inspiration for my logo.

In preparation for our up-coming ‘Twelve books of Christmas’ Louise from Bloomsbury publishers has sent two book ideas for us to look at. ‘Great Women who Changed the World’ and ‘A Boy called Christmas’. We are testing them out this week and will let you know how we get on. Exciting times ahead and we are all hoping Santa will bring us some cool books very soon………..

Anna is our ‘book buzz’ designer ?‍?

I am Anna and I designed the book buzz logo last year (November 2016). I was 10 years old and I was in 4th class at the time. My first design for my logo was a bookworm sitting on a book but it was too big. I thought of many more designs, some big and some small. I wanted my design to be special to me. Then I thought of a hive. When I was younger I used to help my nana when she worked in a shop called ‘The Honey Pot’. Their logo was a beehive. I always wondered what was in the beehive. In this case, I thought it was a library full of books. I was going to write authors on the hive but I could only fit my favourite authors so it wouldn’t have been interesting to others. I put the school crest as the door to the hive to show it is St Oliver Plunkett’s. There are 10 bees around the hive to show my age and that we are busy with books. This is the inspiration for my logo.

We will reveal Anna’s crest next week. What could it ‘bee’ like……
