On Wednesday after school Year 7 invited their parents for tea and delicious cakes that they had made themselves before proudly showing them round the school at the Year 7 At Home event.
“I found it fun going round the school and showing my parents my school life,” said Megan, 7L. Bella from the same class, also appreciated the opportunity. “It was great! I felt very proud to be able to show my parents around.”
Parents enjoyed this informal occasion where they could appreciate how well and quickly their daughters had settled into school life and how happy and confident they were after almost five weeks at St Helen’s.
“It was so nice to see why you’re so tired at the end of the day, and the lovely friends you’ve made.” Said the parents of 7L student, Lily.
It was an event that satisfied both parents and daughters, as summed up by Chloe from 7L: “It was nice for us and our parents really appreciated it.”
We wish the year 7 students well as they continue at St Helen’s and look forward to lots more events where they can welcome their parents into their school world.
