It has been delightful to welcome the new group of Preps at GCC. They are settling into school life beautifully in their shiny new shoes and crisp uniforms. Starting at “big school” can sometimes be daunting for Preppies, so it was extra special to bring a treasured friend to Prep for a day in the first week of school to enjoy a Teddy Bear’s Picnic.
Picnic rugs were set up under the shade of the trees outside the Prep White classroom and each class spent time in this relaxing spot to read some teddy bear stories, nibble on some mini teddy biscuits and share in conversations with teachers and new friends.
Not only did we enjoy the sweet little picnic, but our teddies also had a good look around our new classroom, helped us do our classwork, and were able to be there for those extra cuddles needed in a day. I’m sure that the teddies were very tired after their big day at school 🙂
