Pupils at Monkton Pre-Prep were bursting with excitement last week when Ted from The Forever Friends Appeal paid them a visit.
Joining them in their assembly, the children heard all about the exciting things taking place for this year’s Ted’s Big Day Out on 17th October.
Every child was given a sheet to design their own Funky Footwear, the theme for the day this year and they have all started to think about what they will wear on their feet when we celebrate Ted’s Big Day Out at Monkton. After the assembly there were lots of cuddles as the children said goodbye to Ted.
Head of our Pre-Prep Mrs Kathryn Morrell said: “Children had a wonderful surprise when they arrived at assembly and Ted walked in. This is the ninth year we have taken part in Ted’s Big Day Out and supported the Forever Friends appeal, and the children are more excited than ever about taking part this year.”
Ted’s Big Day Out is sponsored by Mogers Drewett, and The Forever Friends Appeal has organised a wealth of activities this year for families to take part in. This includes a Wacky Wellie hunt in Bath. There are 15 shops with some specially designed wellies hiding in their shop window. Download the map here to find them all.
