IT was a dramatic finale for youngsters preparing to start their new school in September.

The new Year 7 intake at Oasis Academy Mayfield, in Sholing, have spent the past week taking part in a summer school so they could get to know the school grounds as well as meet their new teachers and make new friends.

The fun-packed week included an array of activities and culminated in a special performance of a traditional African folk tale called A Hare Fools The Baboons.
