School’s out for the summer

SPLASH Day is an annual event that both teachers and children look forward to with a cheeky smile.

In the ‘calm before the storm’, as foundation stage pupils poured into to the playground in swimming costumes, armed to the teeth with water balloons, pistols and buckets, there was an uneasy silence.

As some tumbleweed breezed through the silent playground, the whistle was blown and Splash Day began.
In the ensuing shenanigans Spanish teacher Miss Irissarri was taken down in an onslaught of water balloon bombardment, while a bucket of cold water was mercilessly unleashed on the head of an unsuspecting Miss Yarwood.

There were a number of competitions once everyone had been thoroughly splashed, including hitting letter targets with super-soakers and a bucket carrying race, won by the Norman House team.
With temperatures rising it was once again time for the Summer Fair in the school grounds.

A glamorous affair as always, Marbella’s glitterati ditched events such as Nikki Beach’s White Party in favour of our shindig.

Door staff on the school gates had a bulging VIP list, but many well-heeled types had to be turned away despite having queued all night, such was the demand to be snapped at our annual fundraiser.

The end of term also saw budding thespians from Primary perform their summer production ‘Move It’.

Based around the relationship of a brother and sister in opposing dance crews, the youngsters wowed their families and friends with dance routines and catchy songs, under the direction of Miss Graham who ensured a sell-out performance to finish the term with a bang!
