African Caribbean Evening
 African Caribbean Evening On Friday February 1st, students from Year 7 right through to the Sixth Form presented a night in celebration of African and Caribbean culture. The Sixth Form opened the show with a comical drama piece depicting village life in Africa, which was performed through song and dance as well as modelling a variety of colourful cultural attire on a catwalk. Former boxer Mark Prince (ex‐ International IBF and WBO Champion) spoke about The Kiyan Prince Foundation, which he founded in 2007 after his personal tragedy of losing his son, Kiyan Prince, to knife crime. In addition, he gave a talk encouraging students to be the best they can be. Other special guests included former students from Oaks Park’s first intake of Sixth Formers: Ade Omedyei (The CEO of the YouTube craze “Don’t Jealous Me!”); British Gospel Reggae artist Gyamma, as well as former student Chris Crichlow, who has now gone on to be a Sound Engineer working with O2 for artists such as Tinie Tempah and Alicia Keys. African Caribbean Evening was a great event, celebrating a night of culture and positivity exhibited through a variety of talents. Well done to Mrs Castle who organised the event and to all staff and students involved! Miss S Martin Teaching Assistant
