Year 6 Mothers' Lunch
Year 6 mother, Fiona Merchie, kindly organised a lunch at the Fairfax Arms in Gilling East for all Year 6 mothers on the first day of the new half term.
This date also enabled boarding parents, particularly some overseas ones, to attend. From a year group of 22 children, 14 mums were able to attend and all deemed it a huge success, with new friendships being formed and strengthened. Labels were worn to help this year's new mothers identify their children's friends; conversation flowed, and there are already plans for another lunch at a date convenient for those who couldn't make it on Tuesday. Many thanks to Fiona for the great idea and for the excellent organisation.
If other year groups would like to do something similar please don't hesitate to contact the School Office, via the school, to find out how you might send out an invitation.
