Whole school picnic – Tuesday 9 May
All students and staff will be coming together to celebrate the coronation of our King in a picnic on Tuesday 9 May. The purpose of this event is to foster a sense of community and unity among our staff and students. It will also provide an opportunity for us to celebrate the history and culture of our country. During the event, we will have fun activities such as a house competitions – including design a crown, coronation bunting and picnic decoration (the aim is to have as many commonwealth countries represented as possible) – a photobooth and music to keep everyone entertained. There will also be a variety of foods and drinks to enjoy (no meat or nuts are allowed). We look forward to having a fun-filled day!
