Pupils given send-off with boat trip

Peppard Primary School said goodbye to its pupils with a boat trip on the Thames.

Peppard Primary School said goodbye to its pupils with a boat trip on the Thames.

Fifteen pupils from Year 6 first took a trip in the school bus, which had been specially decorated by their parents, as they left for Henley.

The bus had bunting, flower chains, fairy lights and signs saying “SKOOLS OUT”. A string of cans were also hanging from the back of the bus.

Two homemade banners with all the pupils’ names sprayed on were displayed along the outside while Madness’s

Baggy Trousers
was played on the sound system. They then drove to Hobbs of Henley where they got on board Consuta II for their trip. Family and friends then joined the pupils at Mill Meadows in Henley for games of rounders and a fish and chip supper.



Headteacher Nick Steele said: “They have been a very successful year group. They have performed very well in their exams, sports competitions and in their performance at the Kenton Theatre. They are a very good group of children who have earned an evening to relax before they have six weeks off and go to secondary school.

“Though I didn’t get to go for fish and chips and rounders because I had a governors’ meeting!”
