Saturday 8th July marked the date for this year's graduation celebrations for our pre-schoolers who will be heading off to 'big school' in September.
The children arrived dressed for a party and party they did! Lots of dancing and memories were made by this very special group of leavers who have formed strong friendships during their time together at The Old Vicarage. Before we knew it, it was time for the children to don their graduation cap and gown, ready to walk up the isle to receive their diploma in front of a packed audience of our lovely families.
Special mention was given to two parents being Sarah Sumner by way of her excellent links in parent partnership and received our Teacher's Choice Award, together with Donna Turner who was awarded her own Certificate of Merit for being Nursery's very own Mary Berry and has kept us topped up on delicious homemade treats.
Once again, it was another packed house of excited parents and extended families who came to take part in their child's first educational milestone and following the formal graduation proceedings, the tradition of all the children and our invited families gathered together for food and photographs in the garden.
Sincere thanks go to all of the staff who work extremely hard throughout the year and also to those who gave up their valuable free time on the day to share the experience with the children.
The Class of 2017 was a special one.....Never lose your sense of wonder x
