On a beautiful Summer’s evening, the boarders threw a surprise party to Houseparent’s – Mrs Easterbrook & Miss Easterbrook.
A Saturday shopping trip gave the children a chance to buy decorations, visit ‘paint a pot’ for a present and get party rings (staple of any party surely?!). Back at school, the children spent the week collecting photos for a memory scrapbook with messages from every boarder – full and flexi.
The special guests were very surprised when they walked through the doors to huge cheers that lasted for ever! Afternoon tea was enjoyed by all followed by a much-loved Hatherop Castle tradition – musical chairs. The Head of Boarding gave a very moving speech and the evening finished with a great game of rounders as the sun went down!
