On Friday 19 May, Elleray opened its doors for the afternoon to give families and friends of the pupils the opportunity to see what the children have been up to over the course of the year.
As well as various displays around the school, guests were also treated to a music and drama performance in the marquee. The school playing field was a popular venue, where children and guests were able to learn some circus skills, courtesy of Mr Yates. They were also able to improve their cricket skills in the nets and take part in football target practice.
Away from the playing field, Mr Platt’s slackline in the woods proved to be a firm favourite, while the Elleray greenhouse provided a more relaxed setting, where children were able to plant out tomatoes and peppers, ready to take home at the end of term.
A huge thank you to all those who were able to attend. We hope you enjoyed seeing what the children have been up to.
The first time my daughter and I visited the school she said to me “that is a happy school no question.” The scholastic achievements of the school are evident and an easy measure for a school to demonstrate. What is hard to quantify is the holistic development of a pupil at which, in my experience, Windermere School excels.
Windermere School is such a unique community to be a part of. Not only is it based in a truly beautiful and inspiring national park, but the environment created by staff and students alike makes for an incredibly supportive, proactive, exciting and international place of learning in which everyone can thrive and be the best they can be.
