Pre Prep Sports Day: We hope that all our Pre Prep families will be able to join us for our annual Sports Day on Saturday, 31 October. The children will be divided into teams for the morning and will move from one event to the next with their parents. To make your lives easier, we will put siblings in the same group so that parents do not have to cut themselves into many pieces. The children should please wear their Grayston shorts, the Grayston golf shirt, white socks, black tackies and the Grayston hat. Comfortable clothes and shoes are a must for the parents! Children should please assemble on the tiered stands on Sam’s Field (the top field) at 08:40 as we would like to begin promptly at 09:00. There will be tea and coffee available and water and watermelon for the children. Should you require any other refreshments, please bring these along. In order to facilitate arrangements, we would appreciate it if you would complete the RSVP slip below and return it to your child’s class teacher by Tuesday, 27 October.

After assembly, you are invited to join the children, their Care Bears and the teachers for tea on the Pre Prep playground.
