The Big Hoot Launch 2015

The pupils in the Big Hoot after school club had an amazing day yesterday at the official launch of The Big Hoot 2015.

The children were invited to attend the launch as VIP guests.  This special invite was given to the pupils by the school coordinators of the Big Hoot in recognition of the hard work, effort and time that they put into the project.

The open top bus drove us to the special event at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

After the exciting bus ride into the city, the children entered the official launch to take part in a range of activities, and to listen to the special speeches from those involved in the project.

Owl fun- of course!

Busy creating more fabulous artwork.

We were thrilled to see Wisey on the big screen along with the other schools owlets.

We were also treated to an owl display.

Once the launch was officially declared, we were able to view the parliament of owls who will live at the BMAG for the next ten weeks.

During the day, the pupils confidently spoke to members of the press. We featured on ITV News Central and in the Birmingham Mail.

After an exciting morning of interviews and photos with the press, our VIP guests were looking forward to the ride back to school. Their favourite part of the ride was going underneath the dark tunnels.

What a super end to this special project!
Each pupil in school has been involved in The Big Hoot. Therefore, you should all feel very proud of such a wonderful achievement. Please try to visit Wisey the owl, who can be found at Blakesley Hall, over the Summer holidays.
