The car park was packed with class-run games and activities, including Christmas crafts, lucky dip and the ever-popular Splat the Rat. Around the sensory garden, the Cubs and Beavers were selling second hand books and toys and the Brownies did a brisk trade in cakes and cookies. The students going to Tanzania raised funds for the Seeway Trust by organising a scavenger hunt, Christmas Quiz and a seasonal/African themed pin the hat on the giraffe.
The Cooper Hall was full of vendors selling everything from bags and baked goods to wine and woollen scarves (even including pizza ovens!). Santa was kept busy in his gingerbread house whilst the mulled wine stall could barely keep up with demand. The Japanese ladies in the Academy impressed everyone with their culinary and craft skills, selling their popular hair accessories and other hand-made items.
Whilst the wet zone was a complete washout (no-one needed the dunk tank or wet sponge to cool down), it was standing-room only in the canteen as the music department put on a Christmas sing-a-long extravaganza.
With special thanks to Grace Bau for her amazing Christmas decorations and everyone who volunteered their time and energy to help run an activity. Wishing you all the best for this festive season and looking forward to next term's event. Keep an eye out for the poster!
