Well done to our OC students who participated in the Channel 7 television program It’s Academic yesterday. We left very early to travel to Foxtel studios in Sydney to begin filming by 8am. Our school competed against students from Dapto and Dubbo primary. We enjoyed our very own luxury green room where we were able to watch the program while it was being filmed. Some of the highlights of the day included hair and make up for our superstar contestants as well as the random spotlight questions which our students excelled at! Unfortunately our episodes won’t be aired until next year and we will receive a DVD of the episodes after broadcast. Prizes for contestants should hopefully arrive soon!

It’s Academic

This week permission notes were sent home to OC students about the excursion to Foxtel Studios to take part in the Channel 7 television program, It’s Academic. Our recording day has been confirmed for Week 6 next term, Tuesday 20th August. In the lead up to this event we will be practising using example questions from past episodes. Our school will be represented by 15 students (5 teams of 3) plus 2 reserves. Some students have already expressed an interest in preferring to remain behind camera instead of in front. Regardless of this, all students are welcome and encouraged to attend this excursion, cheer on our school, learn about the television production process and enjoy some star treatment in the green room (I wish!). If you have any questions, please let me know. A copy of our permission note is also attached for you below.
