30 November 2018
The 2018 Christmas Bazaar will go down in memory as something of a vintage.
The new stalls (brilliantly designed and made by Paul Wentworth) gave the hall a professional appearance and proved massively popular with boys and indeed parents. The general ambience was frenetic (just as it should be) but far less noisy than previous years!
The library was transformed into a smoothie parlour, a book shop, a garden centre and a TV studio by Alison Thomas and the Year 7 boys. These were the business ideas that the groups had pitched for in a proper interview process for the Tycoon Enterprise Competition, similar to Dragon’s Den. I am delighted to write that they were all a huge success and turned a healthy profit! (See more on these activities below.)
My thanks, as always, go to the JPA, parents, staff and especially the boys for making this such a unique event.
