16 Oct Parents’ Reception
A wonderful occasion was held at Appleford on 13 October. A four course dinner was prepared by the catering staff and parents invited to a black tie event. Pupils were involved with laying tables, polishing glasses, folding napkins, and flower arrangements.
Pupils in year 10 and year 11 served canapes and drinks on arrival and then waited on tables. Pupil Leah Beasley, assisted by pupil Dylan Ballantyne, created a delicious desert for the 60 guests. Rachel Greig entertained by singing two songs. The marquee was also decorated with art work by pupils.
Pupils had received training on how to serve and pour wine at the table. They all did an amazing job and received much praise from all present.
