This week saw our annual Secrets Room shop for the children (and staff!) at Vinehall.

This is a wonderful event, where the hard work of the FOV and Class Reps is only realised when the first children travel through the tunnel entrance into a room filled with Christmas cheer and wonder!

The children enjoyed this opportunity to shop for their families, with careful consideration being given to every choice made. There should be some delighted parents on 25th December!

Nursery, Kindergarten, Pre-Prep and the Juniors were also surprised by a very special visitor who spoke to them all about what it was like to be Father Christmas (hard work and a very busy December), how old he was (his beard is 2,000 years old!) and what they would like for Christmas (train sets apparently).

Thank you to everyone who helped create the gifts, set up the room and of course act as personal shoppers on the day.  It would not be possible without you all.
