Last Day Sprinkled with Disney Magic
Friday, 16 May 2014
The Year 13 girls were decked out in Disney-themed fancy dress for their final day at Bolton School before Study Leave begins.
There were costumes evoking the magic of all Disney’s eras, and a wide variety of characters represented: Despicable Me’s Minions, Mike and Sully from Monsters Inc., Mary Poppins, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, a group of Lost Boys, Tinkerbelle, and even Goofy, Mickey and Minnie! All of the characters from Winnie the Pooh and The Wizard of Oz were represented, as were the title characters from The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. Toy Story was another popular choice: retiring Head Girl Annabel Ault chose a Buzz Lightyear costume – complete with ‘working’ wings – while two girls joined forces to dress up as Slinky Dog! Cruella De Vil was accompanied by two Dalmatians, and both Jafar and Maleficent were seen in the Riley Quad. There was of course a strong royal presence, including Snow White, Cinderella, Jasmine, Fiona with Shrek on her arm, Belle, Arial, and Frozen’s Anna and Elsa. Even the house from Up! was in attendance!
There was a party atmosphere in the Sixth Form Centre throughout the morning, especially since the Girls’ Division had been decked in Disney decorations for the occasion. At morning break, the girls were invited out onto the sports field for a variety of fun activities and a special visit from the ice-cream van. There was plenty of fun in the sun, with the brilliant weather adding an extra bit of sparkle to an already memorable day.
The girls then had a lovely Leaver’s Lunch in the Arts Centre, before farewell speeches from Mrs Winder and Mrs Smalley. The whole morning was a great send-off for the Sixth Form girls before Study Leave and A-Level exams, and was thoroughly enjoyed by students and staff alike.
Some of the Sixth Form girls visited the Junior Girls at Hesketh House at lunchtime, temporarily transforming the playground into Disneyland! The Junior Girls were delighted by the costumes and had a lovely time with the Sixth Formers before they left school.
