A fun-filled Daffodil Day


On Daffodil Day, girls came to School dressed in yellow, white or gold, creating a sea of yellow, and there was a fun and energetic atmosphere throughout the day. As is customary, Daffodil House was raising money for Marie Curie and, in addition this year, for Tiggy Winkles Wildlife hospital. 

In the morning break, each girl had a chance to decorate a plain cupcake with yellow icing and different toppings such as sprinkles and edible paper daffodils. The staff would like to say a huge thank you to parents who contributed to baking or buying plain cakes. It was very much appreciated!

At break and lunch time, Year 6 girls in Daffodil house were in charge of fun and imaginative stalls: guess the name of the hedgehog; guess how many sweets in the jar; guess how many daffodils in the vase; and splat the rat. At the end of lunch break, two winners of a rather unusual competition were given permission to throw a sponge at some of the teachers!

Thank you to everyone who helped out on the day, especially the Daffodil House Captains, Fran and Ngaire, and their mothers, for organising such a fantastic array of activities. We would also like to thank everyone who donated money to the two very deserving charities. Daffodil Day was a fantastic success, and much fun was had by all.
