OSA Students Meet Author Jeff Kinney

On Friday 22nd November, the English department took over 30 Year 7s to the Oxford Playhouse to hear from worldwide best-selling author Jeff Kinney. Some parents may be familiar with his series of books ‘the Diary of the Wimpy Kid’. The children absolutely loved seeing one of their favourite books brought to life with a range of engaging activities and lots of audience participation. The audience, which was filled with local secondary and primary schools in Oxford, were tasked with the challenge of asking Jeff a question he had never heard before during the Q and A. One of our students creatively asked “How many crocodiles have you seen in your life?”. This garnered a laugh from Jeff (who had indeed never been asked that before)and the rest of the OSA students showing their full appreciation of this through cheering an applause!
