Head of Wycliffe Preparatory School, Mr Palmer, tells us what has been going on in the last week.
Here we are at the end of another very busy week for the children at the Prep School. We have had two Art Exhibitions in the last week. The younger children all had art work on display for their parents to come in and view and it was lovely to see such fabulously creative work being enjoyed by the parents, after they had enjoyed the obligatory cup of tea with sandwiches and cakes.
We have also had the Art Exhibition for the older pupils running all week in the CP. The talent that some of our children have is unbelievable. Some of the work on display is of such a high standard that it is impossible to think the work has been done by children aged 8 to 13.
One of the many highlights of my life as a Headmaster is the annual Reception class trip to visit the local garden centre where I have the honour of driving the mini bus. The excitement of the children is great to see. We learnt about plants and the very complicated irrigation system the garden centre has. The highlight for me was undoubtedly seeing a magnificent peacock, with its fabulous tail fully extended showing off to a hen which in typical fashion was completely ignoring him – the more he tried the more she ignored!!
