Fryer Week of Christmas
Before they head home for the holidays, Fryer House, have been making spirits bright through a series of festive activities, centred around caring for and supporting others.
From penning Christmas cards, to taking part in a house-wide project entitled ‘Heart of Appreciation’, running reverse advents, and supporting the three senior houses with all of their charity endeavours, Fryer House have been at one with the season of giving.
Glad to be celebrating the end of term in style, each Fryer Tutor was delighted to receive a bespoke Christmas jumper from their tutees, that had been lovingly crafted with tinsel, pom poms and the most garish of festive galore.
In the wise words of Elf, ‘The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.’ And so, lunchtime carol sessions were followed by mince pies; Just Dance-offs accompanied by care free vocal performances; and Christmas quizzes, bath bomb making and cinnamon bun baking, all backed by classic Christmas tracks.
Year 7 student, Ruby, commented “It was nice to have a week where you could connect with your friends and chill out doing fun things together without having to rush about.” At the end of the week, a WHAT (Watch at Home Together) Film Night was the perfect opportunity to wind down following a demanding term.
Adrian Stewart, Head of Fryer House, commented “Everything that we’ve made, baked or done has been based around caring for and supporting others. This has been a real hallmark of the house this term, and deserved to be celebrated during this week.”
