So the last day of term finally arrived and we had to say a sad goodbye to some of our children who are off to school in September. We had a little practice of graduation day earlier in the week and it was obvious that the children had listened carefully and understood their part in the ceremony. They all sat beautifully and patiently listening and waiting for their name to be called. Each child took a turn to be presented with their PE bag that they had helped to make, and a Tillingham Pre-school graduation sash and certificate scroll. They posed briefly for a photograph before launching themselves at each member of staff for BIG HUGS and kisses!! Unusually there were no tears this year from any of the children, with only some parents/carers and staff overwhelmed by the occassion!! Once all the presentations were over and a group photo taken it was party time with Tidimix from www.theperfectpartypeople.co.uk. As usual the children absolutely loved it, the balloons, bubbles, magic and party games and were enthralled throughout and almost as loud as Tidimix himself! As the entertainment drew to close the children and adults did the Hokey Cokey which was lovely but not easy with so many people joining in! Once the entertainment had finished the children sat down for some much needed drinks and party food and the raffle was called with lots going away happy with a prize. Afterwards the sad final goodbyes and good wishes were said to our ‘leavers’ and happy summer holiday wishes given to all. Many thanks to everyone who helped out on the day to help make it special. See you in September!
