24th November Frome Night The Light- Lantern Parade
Frome Light the Night is led by artists Mel Day and Aliss Vaas. They have been running the Frome Lantern Parade since 2017, supported by Frome Town Council. On Thursday, Oakfield pupils from years 7 and 8 were invited to take part in one of their annual lantern workshops, at the Academy. This year’s parade theme is ‘Ice’ and our pupils made giant penguins. It was a fantastic day - pupils were creative, engaged and produced beautiful work. Please come to the centre of Frome on Friday 24 November to see our pupils represent Oakfield Academy at the parade. For more information: https://www.discoverfrome.co.uk
