It was that time of year again when the Drawing Room is transformed into the most magical of shopping experiences.

The children arrived clutching shopping lists and bags with eyes full of wonder as they travelled from the front hall into Father Christmas’s grotto. The great man himself had also managed to take time from his busy schedule to visit the Pre-Prep Children. Their faces as they discussed purchases and their Christmas wishes were just precious.

There was an abundance of handmade and “upscaled” gifts available for the children to buy for their families and loved ones. All of the presents were chosen by the children themselves and we hope they bring you as much pleasure as the children had on Tuesday.

The Secrets Room is entirely new to us! I wanted to let you all know what a super idea we think it is; such a brilliant way to teach the children that giving really is more exciting and rewarding than receiving.
