St Margarets Bushey Independent School for Girls' activity open day 'a fantastic day'
How to earthquake-proof a building and erect a tent were just two of the activities demonstrated at St Margaret’s Open Day in Bushey, where record numbers attended.
St Margaret’s, a leading independent school for four hundred and twenty girls aged four to eighteen, welcomed about 1,000 parents and pupils from across the county on Saturday, making it the biggest event in recent years at the school.
A diverse range of activities was on show during the day, including presentations from the Head and Head Girl, how to earthquake-proof a building, live drama performances, science experiments such as studying the anatomy of the brown rat "rattus norvegicus", smartboard quiz games for innovative French, English and Maths lessons, football, tours of the estate, tent-building and cooking.
Headmistress Lynne Crighton was delighted to see so many families visiting St Margaret’s.
She said: "It was a fantastic day and wonderful to see so many visitors come through the gates. It has to be by far the most popular open day that we have run during my headship and we were even blessed with good weather."
There are more opportunities for parents to come along and experience daily life at the school, with the next "St Margaret’s at work" open morning taking place on Wednesday, November 6 from 9.30am to 12 noon.
