Children as young as three entertained a packed audience at the Gad’s Hill annual Mother’s Day assembly.
The youngest classes performed an ensemble of songs and poems before parading in hand-made crowns with drawings and words that showed how much they love their mums.
They decorated the stage with a collage of butterfly and heart pictures and received rapturous applauds for the actions and props in their toe-tapping numbers and well-practised prose including ‘Have a day off, mum’ and ‘It’s wondrous what a hug can do’.
After, guests were treated to tea and homemade biscuits and cakes courtesy of the school’s parents’ association, The Friends’ of Gad’s.
And Headmaster David Craggs surprised some well deserving pupils at the end of the show by awarding them with certificates for excellence in academic subjects and extra-curricular activities – a regular reward system used throughout the school to recognise students’ achievements.
Art, gymnastics, model-making, news, homework, as well as academic learning, were just some of the topics children were recognised for.
Gad’s Hill produces excellent GCSE results year-on-year but also provides a wide range of beyond-the-classroom activities.
