This annual event was once again a huge success. The Parents’ Association organised a very popular day which raised £4000 for Kids Company. Camilla Batmanghelidjh, who founded the charity, made a guest appearance and drew the first raffle ticket.
Over the day there were musical and dance performances from a cross-section of pupils and staff that entertained spectators and passersby. Located in the marquee was a Summer Bazaar, with a mix of Harrodian and other commercial stalls selling items as diverse as cupcakes and second-hand uniform.
Clair Green, from the School Administration Office, ran a stall from which she sold her beautiful jewellery. The School chef, Josef, and his team prepared a lunch that was fit for a Queen with salmon, coronation chicken, strawberries and cream and other traditional fare on offer.
In keeping with the great British tradition, an afternoon cream tea was also served. So that people could eat outside, long lines of trestle tables and benches were arranged on the field in Jubilee street-party style. There was a range of fun activities to keep the children amused: an animal petting farm, trampolines, zorb balls, inflatables, face painting, surf simulator and swimming.
