Prize day was always one that everybody looked forward to! Students, teachers and parents alike approached the day each summer term with great anticipation. Preparations would get underway weeks in advance. School manager, Christina, wasn’t charged with arranging many aspects of the event. There was much to think about. To begin with Christina would ensure that the beautiful white mark he was booked and that the company would come the week before prize day in order to erect the marquee in the school playground. The bright white of the marquee against the blue of the summer skies it was always a beautiful sight to behold and the children would start to get excited when they saw the marquee going up.
Christina would take great care to choose flowers each year that were bright and order them in vast quantities so as to decorate the area and make everything look rather lovely. Then of course there were the drinks and canapés. The small kitchen team could be depended upon to do a wonderful job of creating finger snacks that were both tasty and lovely to look at. Then of course there was the all important task of carefully selecting the prizes. The prizes would fall across many categories, academic, musical, sports, achievement and behaviour based. The teachers would carefully select the children that they believed had excelled in the various categories at hand. Younger children in reception, year one, year two and year three would all receive prizes of one kind or another for taking part and for their effort.
Mrs Davidson, Head of English, would take on the task each year of organising the prize trophies. First things first, the previous years recipients would be called upon to kindly return the trophies a few weeks in advance so as to allow sufficient time for trophy engraving. Cheshire based, the school welcomed families from across the area and it was Mrs Davidson’s responsibility to ensure that each of the prizes was suitably and accurately engraved ahead of the event. The day would finally arrive and it was one of great joy, particularly if the weather was kind and the sun was shining. Children would be called one by one to the front of the marquee to receive their prize along with a handshake and some words of sincere commendation by the headmaster. It was a wonderful time to reflect on the hard work and achievements as well as team spirit by all.
