Parents dine with young pupilsPosted: 17th September 2018
Reception pupils excitedly welcomed their parents into school for a special lunch.
The youngest pupils at Magna Carta Primary Academy celebrated their first day at school by dining with their parents.
The lunch was the first occasion to take place in the school’s brand-new building which was unveiled to families last week when they were invited to help move items from the old site to the new.
To ease the Reception pupils into their new routine, the family lunch was held before they went home for the day.
Shane and Charlotte Tomlinson, of Stansted, joined son Zachary for his first school lunch.
Mum Charlotte said: “Visiting the school the week before he started helped Zachary. Being a part of the move was a nice touch.
“We have been talking about it with him for so long that it was not a major surprise for him to start. Having lunch together on his first day has been really nice.”
Headteacher Marios Solomonides said: “Lunchtime is such an important part of the school day for any child. This was an opportunity for parents to sample our new, healthier menu and to demonstrate that we want parents to be a part of our school community.
“I am so pleased so many parents joined their child for lunch.”
