We have been well behaved most of the time but occasionally the teachers had to offer us treats to keep us in order!chocolate

Buxton Carnival 2009

February 16, 2010 by

Although this is being posted well after the event, I thought we should post a comment about the 2009 Buxton Well Dressing Carnival. With only a couple of weeks to go before the carnival took place,  Peak Forest Primary School decided it should enter a float. Given that it is a small village school, to boost numbers they teamed up with Peak Forest Playgroup where there are many siblings of the school children.

After a lot of frantic activity a trailer was found (courtesy of Lomas’s) and staff and children all made costumes. The result was called “Down on the Farm” and you can see from the picture that they looked fantastic and all had a great time.

The school also won an amazing 3 – yes 3 – 1st prizes. Best Tableau on Vehicle, Most Humorous Entry, and Best Tableau.
