Pre-Prep Family Fun Day

The sun shone as we welcomed back all the families to our Pre-Prep Family Fun Day this year.

The popular event is organised by our wonderful Pre-Prep Friends and is adored by everyone. It was the perfect opportunity to catch up on everyone’s adventures from the holidays and for the new families to meet friends and to become more familiar with the Pre-Prep before starting formally.

Farmyard looked so inviting with a gathering of gazebos and bunting. The grounds team had worked tirelessly throughout July and August and the Elstree grounds and flowerbeds were looking at their finest.

Activities on offer

The children arrived with their parents and siblings and were treated to a host of activities. In one corner of Farmyard, tigers, princesses, and bats were appearing from the face painting table. Other children enjoyed icing and decorating their own biscuits before tasting their creations! Once tummies were full, the children had fun testing their control as they hooked a duck from the paddling pool. There was also a treasure map to explore and wellie wanging too!

A real highlight of course was Roly the magician. He treated all the children to a hilarious magic show. Balls kept appearing, things disappeared, and a beautiful rabbit even emerged from nowhere! Once he had finished his magic show, he spent the remainder of the afternoon modelling balloons for each child to take home.

Whilst the children played, the parents chatted and enjoyed some of the delicacies that had been baked and donated by the parent body. The Pimms also went down very well. It was such a hot afternoon, it was calling out to be enjoyed!

A huge thank you to Mrs Rebecca Mills (chair of the Pre-Prep Friends Committee) and her team for making it such a success.
