Flood of visi­tors for leavers’ day

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOL REPORT -

PUPILS, teach­ers and par­ents rev­elled in the last few days of term as a school held a Year Two leav­ing assem­bly and bar­be­cue which ex­ceeded ex­pec­ta­tions, af­ter 150 peo­ple turned up.

Den­ham Vil­lage In­fant School hosted the event on July 17 and chil­dren were pre­sented with spe­cial gifts at the assem­bly be­fore tak­ing part in the bar­be­cue.

Wendy Cope, chair­man of the Friends of Den­ham Vil­lage In­fant School (FODVIS), who helped to or­gan­ise the event, said of the leav­ing bar­be­cue: “It was bril­liant, it was re­ally good. Ev­ery­body turned up, and I think ev­ery­body re­ally en­joyed it.”

She was shocked with the large turnout and said it made the day even more spe­cial.

“We have about 38 chil­dren so I ex­pected about 70 peo­ple,” she said.

She added: “A lot more turned up than what I had ex­pected.”

De­spite de­scrib­ing the day as “pretty crazy,” Miss Cope was pleased with how the day went.

She said: “It went down re­ally well. The fact that 150 peo­ple turned up was a state­ment in it­self re­ally.”
