A big thank you to everyone, young and older, who supported the fifth Blooming Brookies Garden Sale today!
A packed Assembly hall of parents and pupils stocked up on summer plants and flowers, sampled delicious traybakes and cakes over a cuppa and spent their pounds and pennies soaking Mr Massey, golfing with Mr McKee and beating the goalie outside!
The Brooklands Joke Book was on sale, aptly named 'You're Havin' A Giraffe'. The highlight of the afternoon was the unveiling of a 7ft carved wooden giraffe which was specially commissioned by the school to be a permanent outdoor reminder of our much missed friend Caleb. The winning name of this unique giraffe is 'Cookie Cale-laff' - though this spelling is still to be confirmed!
Well done to P6 S/D for their organisation and hard work in putting together such a great afternoon - and of course to their 'leader' and chief organiser Mrs Smart! Whether you bought a cup of tea, a flower pot, a ballot ticket or a sponge to hurl at Mr Massey...THANK YOU!
The final total is still being counted - we'll keep you posted on that.
