Sunday Times Prep School of the Year 2013-14

Happy Campers

The annual ‘Dads and Daughters’ Camp Night took place at the end of last week and by all accounts this popular, highly anticipated event was a roaring success! The tents were grappled with by the dads at the start of the evening, as their daughters enjoyed the freedom of the sports field, disappearing in droves, giggling with their friends. The BBQ and tuck shop saw a steady stream of visitors throughout the evening which remained thankfully dry and fairly warm outside. The inflatable slide was a real hit and when the girls were not whizzing down it, they were happy to boogie away in the ‘disco’ area. An incredible 12 minute display of amazing fireworks rounded off the evening once it grew dark; then it was just a small matter of getting excited girls calm, and into tents and sleeping bags… The cooked breakfast supplied by our wonderful kitchen staff the next morning gave the dads and girls alike, the energy boost needed to pack up their tents and slope off back home – and most likely, straight into bed for a nap!

Huge thanks to the FOHC dads who organised the successful event and our facilities team who were also in attendance and supporting.
