Theme Week is over for another year – and what a week it was!
Make sure to watch the fantastic short video put together during the week. Our thanks to Mrs Brodie, our Head of Science, for her work in creating it.
We would like to extend our thanks to everyone that supported Theme Week at Manor House School. All of the proceeds from the charity afternoon went towards the Make a Wish Foundation, which we are sure you will agree is a very worthy cause.
Make a Wish Foundation has one very clear purpose – to grant the wishes of desperately sick children, giving them something to look forward to and create special memories for their families to cherish.
Mrs Teresa Williams, Head of Art and Drama, and our parent helpers went to great effort to transform the school into a fantasy wonderland for the girls. Even Willow the flying horse made an appearance on Tuesday and Friday!
There were plenty of workshops and activities for the girls to take part in throughout the week – with regular timetabled subjects, such as Science, teaching the girls about rainbows, sparklers and fireworks!
Wednesday saw our Year 7 and 8 girls acting out Greek myths in The Dell, our outdoor classroom. Even though it was the hottest July day on record, this didn’t stop the girls from giving their all. The Dell offered plenty of shade and the hot weather only added to the realism!
The Friday of Theme Week has always been the most anticipated of the week – with this year being no exception! The school was awash with colour as they arrived, dressed as their favourite Disney characters. There was no shortfall of Cinderellas, Snow Whites and Ariels as we welcomed the famous Queens, Kings, Princes and Princesses of Disney past.
Mask making, treasure hunts in the History room, dreamcatcher keyring making in the Mathematics room, fantasy language in the French room, zen tangles in the Art room, fantasy make up and so much more!
It’s clear to see why the girls enjoy Theme Week so much! We managed to raise a fantastic total of £800 for the Make a Wish Foundation – so thank you to everyone for their help and support!
