Great Perse Prep House Off proves a fun finale to term
29 Mar 2021
Fun and frolics were had by all, as Prep pupils celebrated the end of Lent term by taking part in the Great Prep House Off.
Children took part in a Red Nose challenge to raise funds for Comic Relief, arts and crafts tasks and a full set of House hockey and netball matches.
Highlights also included a House Just Dance competition in which Barbarians shook their stuff to One Direction hit What Makes You Beautiful and Corinthians threw some shapes to Will Smith’s Men in Black, while Foresters got down to Can’t Stop the Feeling by Justin Timberlake and Nomads cut some rug to Shakira’s Waka Waka.
An end-of-term awards assembly rounded off the occasion with Barbarians claiming the House Cup.
As part of the end-of-term fun, Abba hit Super Trouper was also given a humorous whole school makeover.
Head James Piper was delighted to see pupils enjoying themselves together in person once more following the recent return to school for many of them.
He said: “Mr Reston, our ‘Head of Fun’, created a wonderful finale to this extraordinary term. After eight weeks of home learning, Prep children had been keen to mark their time back in school in style, all Covid-compliant of course.
“They have especially enjoyed making the most of their time back with friends and also with teachers. The excitement of these past three weeks has whetted the appetite for all that the Summer term offers as the country continues to emerge cautiously from lockdown.”
