BBBRRRIIINNNGGG; That is the bell at Oaklands School today. DING DONG DING DONG; That was the bell at Oaklands School back in the day. Today you have a timer which programmes when the bell rings. When the School started they used a big bell and grabbed the string/rope and shook it. A big steel bell, imagine the sound it would create. Yet we still have that bell for a reminder of what we used back then. In 50 years the bell will probably come off some sort of technoligue. It will be programmed on a new piece of technoligue that they get in the future instead of ipads. The bell would be a new song.
