Nursery Graduation Party

18th July 2024

This year, Nursery will be having a short graduation party on Thursday 18th July in the last week of the school term. This will take place in the Nursery classroom, and we are inviting parents to join us for the party from 2.20-3.20pm. The party will include party food for the children to enjoy, Nursery performing a song, a slideshow of some pictures from the year, and Nursery receiving a certificate and their learning journey books. It is a celebration of how hard they have worked this year and an opportunity for us to show them how proud we are! After the party, the children will then go home at 3.20pm, as normal.


Please ensure your child comes in normal school uniform on this day. We will then be changing them into their graduation outfits at school ready for the party. You will each receive a photo of them in their outfit to take home and keep. Thank you for your continued support and we hope to see you on Thursday 18th July. Remember Nursery are in from 8.45am- 3.20pm and parents can join us for the party from 2.20pm.
