Rydal Penrhos Prep School head Lucy Davies returns with her weekly thoughts, with the topic of two big events next week featuring prominently.
A happy week at Rydal Penrhos Prep School this week, equal excitement about upcoming ‘P’ events… Poppy Day and Pudsey Day!
I have tried to explain that, although both days are equally important, they are rather different in tone.
However, that isn’t really working!
This year the two events are separated by only one day and it has been particularly difficult to explain that next Wednesday pupils will need to wear a poppy, come outside to listen to the last post and let tissue poppies float off into the sky; on Friday pupils will need to wear Pudsey clothing and come outside for a fun run.
Both events are to raise money for charity.
So far today I have been asked if they can dress as a poppy for Pudsey day and if they really have to run around the last post to raise money because they think the last post must be very, very far away and they might not get back in time for lunch (and on Fridays, it’s usually chips!).
Roll on next week…who knows what will happen!
And we’re all getting rather good at coping with uncertainty aren’t we!
