Golden Ticket Expedition at Elmhurst

Elmhurst School for Boys

9th December 2016 | Early Years

The ‘Golden Ticket’ winners are chosen each term by the class teacher and awarded to the boy in their class who has been a role model to others in the school by keeping all the Elmhurst Rules:

  • Be kind
  • Always try your best
  • Listen and follow instructions the first time
  • Walk around the school in a safe and sensible way
  • Keep your hands and feet to yourself
  • Look after your belongings and everything in our school

We have a lot of really wonderful boys at Elmhurst but there are some particularly wonderful boys who were chosen by their class teacher to go on the 'Golden Ticket Expedition' on Friday 2nd December to Foxhollow Nurseries, Woodcote:

Reception - Aryan
1I  -  Daniyal
1P - James
2K - Mylo
2N  - Ryan
3S - Rishi
3C - William
4K - Dylan
5B - Samih
5N - Stanley and Ashvin
6C - Joshua M

There was lots of singing of Christmas songs on the minibus. When we arrived after much deliberation on the merits of Christmas trees we chose and cut down our two enormous trees. There was some amazing teamwork carrying the very prickly trees to the minibus. The boys returned to school for a very special hot chocolate and as many chocolate biscuits as they liked! They then judged the Christmas Decoration Competition. It was very difficult to choose as there was an array of wonderfully sparkly and festive designs but the following were chosen:

For Originality - Mylo in 2K for his very clever Christmas tree made out of sticks that had been very carefully measured

For Beauty - Chirayu in 1P for his beautifully decorated lampshade

For Effort - Morgan 4K and Elias 2K for some amazing sewing, sticking and cutting of some amazing customised Elmhurst Christmas stockings!

Well done to the winners!

A good time was had by all. Thank you to Randall for driving and being an excellent measuring stick! Thanks to Miss Hipgrave and Miss Payne for accompanying us and lastly thanks to Miss Carew for providing the refreshments. Mrs Mawanda had a wonderful morning with such delightful boys. Thank you for being such great role models for Elmhurst.
