Hats off for St Andrew’s

December 3, 2019

Excitement and fun was the order of the day on St Andrew’s day at St Andrew’s Prep. As tradition dictates, the Pre-Prep children started the proceedings in gentle fashion with a hat parade of dazzling creations. From castles, rugby pitches and birthday cakes to hot air balloons, a fully laid café table and a bowl of fruit. It was a millinery treat for the eyes.

Excitement and fun was the order of the day on St Andrew’s day at St Andrew’s Prep.

From castles, rugby pitches and birthday cakes to hot air balloons, a fully laid café table and a bowl of fruit. It was a millinery treat for the eyes.

After a formal service led by Headmaster, Mr Jones, the Year 8 children ‘took charge’ of the school for the morning and organised games around the site including obstacle courses and mazes, a pie in the face opportunity, a glow in the dark experience and a haunted trip to the movies.

A roast lunch with all the trimming followed, providing the children with an opportunity to replenish their energies and get ready for the much anticipated St Andrew’s Day show in the afternoon. Arranged and hosted by the school gap year students, the extravaganza included dancing and songs and sketch shows from our pupils and some eye-opening skits from some eager staff too.

St Andrew’s Day is over but it will be etched on the children’s memories for many, many years to come.
