Oakmeeds' Misleading Promotional Video

I've been scouring YouTube again and have discovered a gem.

A pupil from Oakmeeds has made a promotional video for his school and it's not too bad actually, however it's in urgent need of an edit.

You see, 26 seconds into the video there is a spot with one of the P.E teachers (although by the looks of him, you could be forgiven for mistaking him for a pupil) Anyway, in his part, he boasts about Oakmeeds' huge lucious expansive area of grass. It's a big selling point for the school.

The video fails to inform the viewer that this expansive area of grass is about to be swallowed up by a new school complete with playground and caged all-weather sports pitch.

Here's the video....

From the video we learn that the Oakmeeds P.E department now offer Lacrosse, Ultimate frisbee and that they have a rounders team. What kind of a sport is Ultimate Frisbee? When I was at Oakmeeds, we weren't presented with activites such as Ultimate Frisbee in order to encourage participation.

Additionally, I almost vomited when I spotted that the year sevens, the lowest on the secondary school food chain, now have their own picnic area!

There is also a choir that sing popular music as apposed to traditional hymns.

All that's needed now is for the teachers to wear red blazers and then the school can be renamed Butlins.
