Family and friends flock to Royal Blind School for annual celebration

Posted: 17/06/2016 | Education,

Royal Blind School pupils hosted an afternoon of entertainment today as dozens of parents, siblings and pals descended on the Morningside campus for Family and Friends day.

The annual celebration is a chance for students to show off the school and their hard work in both curriculum subjects and extra-curricular projects from the past year.

For parents, relatives and friends it is an opportunity to meet the staff, view the residential areas, visit the classrooms and see the students’ work.

The pupils also took centre stage where they performed music, poems, and drama for their visitors during the ‘Afternoon Extravaganza’.

And the budding chefs among the students battled it out to be named top chef by cooking delicious dishes in a Ready Steady Cook competition.

This year sixteen-year-old, Junjie, took the top prize.

Elaine Brackenridge, Head Teacher, said: “Friends and Family Day has always been one of my favourite days in the school calendar and this year did not disappoint.

“For some friends and family, it may have been their first time seeing around the school premises. Both pupils and staff worked extremely hard on their presentations for the Afternoon Extravaganza and I hope that those who came along on Friday enjoyed the pupils’ performances.”
