What a success! Finton House was once again transformed into a magical winter wonderland inspired by the all-time favourite tales of Harry Potter.
Fintonia featured festive Christmas shopping, wizardly games and of course a magically beautiful Santa’s grotto for the little ones. Indeed it seemed hard not to get into the Christmas spirit when you saw the stunning Christmas trees and lights, smelled the aroma of the mulled wine and heard children singing festive carols. The children particularly enjoyed the event and parents found it hard to convince them to go home after an afternoon of laughter and sugary treats. The children seemed to be in an all-time high state of happiness as if they were under a magical spell. They surely must have had a good night sleep!
And of course it would not have been a true Christmas Fair if we had not had Father Christmas visiting our children with some lovely presents and festive cheer. The excitement in the Grotto was evident as the children enthusiastically jumped up and down impatiently waiting to meet Father Christmas in real life! It was also a great opportunity for the whole school community to get together celebrating the end of a very successful term here at Finton.
We were delighted that so many Old Fintonians and pupils soon to join the school were able to come to our Fair, with many staying until the very end! It was a wonderful event and we would like to thank all mummies, daddies, Year 6 elves and staff members who helped to make this event such a roaring success. Of course special thanks must go to Miss Lucy and the parents in the Christmas Committee for a very well organised event and some of the most beautiful decorations we have seen at Finton!
