New ad­ven­ture as pupils say farewell to Spring­field

Staines Informer - - NEWS -

YEAR Six pupils prepar­ing to leave Spring­field Pri­mary School in Sun­bury be­gan their send-off in style with ac­tiv­ity trips to Devon and around the Sun­bury area.

The young­sters made light of some un­sea­son­able wintry weather as they took part in ac­tiv­i­ties rang­ing from zip wires and archery to trea­sure hunts and tram­polin­ing as a spe­cial end-of-school bond­ing ac­tiv­ity.

“Leav­ing pri­mary and get­ting ready for sec­ondary school is a very sig­nif­i­cant event for the chil­dren so we like to make it mem­o­rable for all of them, and it was won­der­ful to see them re­spond so pos­i­tively,” said Year Six teacher and Spring­field as­sis­tant head Rose Pea­cock.

“They showed great team­work and ca­ma­raderie, and it was great to spend time with them out­side the usual class­room en­vi­ron­ment.

“The in­struc­tors were full of praise for them. They were great am­bas­sadors for the school. These trips give the chil­dren a chance to get out and try char­ac­ter-build­ing ac­tiv­i­ties, while also hav­ing huge fun with their friends.

“A lot of peo­ple put in a huge amount of hard work for these trips to hap­pen, but know­ing we’ve helped cre­ate so many happy mem­o­ries for the chil­dren makes it all worth­while.”

Year 6 pupils wave farewell to Spring­field Pri­mary School in Sun­bury with fond mem­o­ries to take with them.
