A huge thank you to all of the parents, past, present and future pupils, families and local supporters who made Saturday’s Open Day such a great success. It was wonderful to see so many new and familiar faces and we hope you enjoyed the day. It was a day that highlighted those things that makes Peter’s such a special school and we couldn’t have done it without your continued support.

The day started at 2pm with an energetic and entertaining performance of the Circle of Life. There was great joy and delight as each class joined the stage and 2nd Class got a special welcome as they entered the hall. The boys and girls went on to perform a number of medleys and they got a fantastic reaction. Ms. Whyte spoke to those gathered and welcomed the audience to the school, inviting everyone to enjoy the day’s activities.

After the performance in the hall, everyone was encouraged to take part in various activities in each room. We had Science, IT, Arts and Crafts and Numeracy and Literacy work on show and we also gave people an idea of what an infant classroom in St. Peter’s will look like in September 2014! Our neighbours at Hollyoaks Montessori were also open on the day and it was lovely to see all of the younger children taking part in activities with the older children, and many thanks to Susan and Gretta who are always so supportive of our school. We brought people on a tour of St. Peter’s and everyone got a chance to chat to the teachers, current parents and pupils. While all of this was happening, the Parents Council kindly provided free refreshments, teas and coffee in the hall. We also had face-painting and cupcake decorating, with huge interest in the outdoor/PE activities which took place outside in the backyard.

We gave out special passports to attendees and you got a stamp on your passport for every room you visited. We almost had to ring the passport office to help us out with extra copies as the demand for the passports was so high! All completed passports were entered into a free draw with some great prizes on offer.

Newcomers to our school commented on how colourful, bright and child-friendly the school was and there was a really positive reaction when everyone saw the different Disney/Pixar themes picked to decorate each room and corridor. Why don’t you check out which movies we picked on the video above?

Anyone who took enrolment forms on the day are reminded that the enrolment morning will be on this Wednesday, 2nd October, between 9am and 12pm. Please note that forms cannot be accepted before this date. Extra forms are available from any of the teachers or from Karen in the office. Please don’t hesitate to contact anyone in the school for more information. Keep an eye out for a post later in the week thanking all of our amazing and generous local sponsors!

Thanks again for your involvement and support on such a great day in our school!
