Theres no days like snow days.
"We are not going to close the school" said Dr Akehurst at 10:00, then just an hour later the school was official closed due to the poor weather. Quite why is remained open that long is a bit of a mystery to us; the school was understaffed, a fair percentage of the Sixth Form had already gone home and the walkways and roads were lethal. We will update this article as conditions change.
What Did You Think: YE
We asked you which was the best YE (Young Enterprise) company. You responded Placebo 12%, Ebonite 36%, Elite 14% and 32% said you didn't know. Elite hosted a popular event over the half term, Ebonite however have shown that publicity (in the form of their crazy posters), and a popular lower school disco are the best formula for popularity.

One Year On....
One term down, two to go! Yey! We hope you all had a great time at Christmas and didn't get too drunk at New Year! Now this Christmas marked a special anniversary for Overmark too; it was our first birthday! Unfortunately the school didn't get us a present, and we are still banned! However, that aside, it seemed that with the new year upon us, we should take some time to reflect on a year of Overmark.
