Pupils sure of a big end of term sur­prise

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOL’S NEWS -

CHIL­DREN went down to a pre-school’s gar­den and re­ceived a big sur­prise.

The chil­dren, staff and par­ents of St Mary’s Pre-school in Che­sham cel­e­brated the end of term on Fri­day, July 15 with a teddy bears’ pic­nic in the gar­den.

As the chil­dren set­tled their teddy bears be­side them on the pic­nic blan­kets, all present shared a feast pro­vided by the par­ents, topped off with a home-made choco­late teddy bear cake.

It was a fond farewell to the chil­dren who are leav­ing this term, ready to scat­ter to var­i­ous ‘big schools’ in Septem­ber.

In com­mon with hun­dreds of other St Mary’s Preschool chil­dren over more than three decades, they also took with them pre­cious mem­o­ries of their teach­ers and friends, and of happy times spent play­ing and ex­plor­ing in the St Mary’s Church Rooms and the ad­join­ing gar­den.

For the teach­ers and chil­dren who will be re­turn­ing to the preschool in Septem­ber, it was also a fond “good­bye for now” to St Mary’s Church Rooms.

Dur­ing the re­fur­bish­ment of the Church Rooms, which is due to be­gin over the sum­mer, the preschool will be mov­ing to a new tem­po­rary home at The Meadow, home to Che­sham United Foot­ball Club.

Par­ents and chil­dren alike look for­ward to re­turn­ing in Septem­ber to a preschool which is the same, but dif­fer­ent.
