It was marvellous to see Coombe Dean packed with Year 4 and 5 children and their parents for our Information Evening last night!
We were pleased to welcome back past students (now parents themselves), who enjoyed the familiar feel of Coombe Dean School – but were so impressed with the fabulous facilities that Coombe Dean has introduced in recent years. Also, so many new visitors who, having heard excellent reports of Coombe Dean from friends and families, came to see for themselves what makes Coombe Dean so special – they certainly found out!
Staff and students together put on a warm welcome. Fun, challenging and intriguing activities were put on by each subject; with staff helping children to explore new ideas and informing parents about Coombe Dean.
We have never had so many student volunteers, all keen to show off their school. Some students (ranging from Years 7 to 13!) helped our visitors find their way around; some were based in subject areas, and some performing (a special mention to Coombe Dean’s band – ‘Resonance’ for their singing, and Chloe for her solo).
We all enjoyed the barbecue and accompanying music (produced by students) in the quad, late into the evening!
Thank you to everyone who came along; children, parents, students and staff – all of which made it such an enjoyable and memorable evening!
