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.
Three of our four daughters have been boarders at the Senior School following our unexpected move to Hong Kong in 2012. One moved back to board at Windermere following two years in Hong Kong and our youngest can't wait to follow in her footsteps and return as an overseas boarder into Year 9. We cannot fault the standard of education and care which the girls have enjoyed throughout their Windermere journeys. In particular, we love the location - and the way in which the Lake District becomes part of the curriculum - and the international flavour of the Senior School.
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.
