Carnival Time at Bosbury!
The whole village of Bosbury was awash with colour with the sounds of drums, bells and whistles ringing all around on Thursday as the school staged its first ever carnival procession through the village, led by the Anderson-Mead's donkey!
On the hottest day of the year so far, the parade marched up the sizzling streets to rounds of applause from the sizeable crowds of parents and villagers who had popped into school the day before to pick up one (or several!) of 136 different pieces of artwork which they displayed in the windows of the houses for the children to look at during the event.
It was also lovely to see our Year 6 children walking with their Class 1 buddies during the parade...
... while the very generous FOBS even treated everyone to a well-earned lollipop as the revellers had one final dance on the playground at the end of the day!
Thank you to Mrs. Walker who was the inspiration behind the event, as well as all the staff for working so hard on preparing the outfits, to all of the local residents who displayed the children's artwork in their windows, to all of the parents, villagers and also the staff and children from Jack-in-the-Box who came out to cheer the parade on, and to the local police for providing the event signs and escort.
Don't forget that Bosbury School is FIFTY YEARS OLD next year, and so look out for an even bigger celebration to mark this very special occasion!
