Gordon The Gorilla

Gordon Gorilla Invades Oakmeeds School
On the Friday April 9th 2004 at 2:15pm, Families and friends were seeing off the 3 coach loads of Oakmeeds students who were heading off on a skiing trip to Austria. As the coaches were making their way up the school drive a Gorilla (wearing an Oakmeeds jumper) appeared from some bushes and began to stalk the coaches and chase them along station road.
The Gorilla confronted members of the public and jumped out in front of some cars. Although very shaken, we can happily report that there were no casualties at this time.
