Year 8 Fête and Leavers' BBQ
The whole school was treated to the annual Year 8 Summer Fête during the final week of term. This year saw the widest variety of stalls on show and children of all ages could been seen having a fabulous time together. A huge congratulations to Year 8 for not only planning and organising the event but also for creating such a lovely atmosphere. The afternoon alone raised £1118.50 for the Langalanga Woodard School in Kenya which is an excellent effort from the group. Well done! The cheque for the total amount raised by the Year 8 Fête was presented to the Langalanga Woodard School as part of the Prize Day celebrations.
The evening after the fête saw members of common room and the Year 8 children enjoy the Leavers' BBQ. It was a very pleasant event with delicious food and great company. The now traditional tug-of-war between different groups of children had a different dimension this year with tutors getting fully involved in the tutor group effort. Much fun was had and all of us went home with an extra spring in the step.
