This term, our GDPA Winter Ball auction winners were invited in for their exciting day at School! There were four prize winners in total – two pupils won the chance to be ‘Head for Half a Day’, and two parents were able to experience a day in School with the children.
Both children enjoyed being Head for half a day – one of the special and unique experiences auctioned at the Winter Ball. They both ensured that everything ran smoothly at School that day and even judged a colouring competition. Mrs Kewell is feeling very threatened that her job may be in jeopardy as both did a truly wonderful job!!
On the same day, two lucky parents were able to experience a day in School with the children.
Mr Clarke had a great day going on a mini beast hunt with the children and enjoyed a game of pool in the Year 6 Common Room. “I was made to feel really welcome and lunch was excellent but I was disciplined for not wearing a blazer!”
Mrs Haggis also enjoyed her day and commented on how calm and relaxing the Grace Dieu environment was. “The new catering is phenomenal and the children are really well behaved. I’ve really enjoyed experiencing the flow of how the children move from one class to another and the smaller classes are great.”
Thank you to our Heads for Half a Day and Parents in School for the Day – a great day was had by all!
