We also had brilliant support from the staff and students. The staff’s main organiser was Joanne Black who added her peerless skills to ensuring every ‘i’ was dotted and every ‘t’ was crossed.
Mel Burton interrupted her family leave to continue providing her advice and expertise as well as allowing us cuddles with Mack.
The teachers threw themselves into the spirit of the event (or were tipped in via the dunk tank).
The teachers added a new element this year with a band who displayed previously hidden musical talents orchestrated by Ms Hemsworth.
The incomparable Mr Stephens overcame his shy retiring nature to be our MC. Mr Bradford provided first aid as necessary.
Away from the glare of publicity the office team sold wristbands and games cards, fielded phone calls and counted money.
Our students made it a team effort by helping set up the hall with market stall and the playground with tables and chairs.
I must also mention our School Captains, Penny and Jacob, who bravely took their turn in the Dunk Tank.
