Thank you to everyone who came along to OsFest on Friday afternoon (April 26th)!

Attendance was the largest it has been for several years, and the sun even made a long-awaited appearance.

OsFest is our annual summer fete style charity event. It is organised in the Summer Term, mainly by students in Osmond House, which is one of our Senior Boys’ Day Houses, with the support of their Housemaster, Mr Paul Lott, and his team.

Pupils, families, staff and friends of the school, from Nursery right the way through to Sixth Form, came together on New Field to enjoy the stalls and attractions, which included inflatable gladiator duel, tug of war competitions, and welly wanging. There was also whack a rat, an inflatable obstacle course, a live band, sponge the teacher, a bouncy castle, hook a duck, a coconut shy, a human fruit machine, beat the keeper, a rowing ergo challenge, face painting, raffles, a barbecue, and refreshments galore!

All funds raised at OsFest will go to our campaign to raise £20,000 to build a new classroom at our link school in Malawi, through the Hope4Malawi charity.

Director at Cheffins and King’s Ely parent, Mr Martin Millard, ran an auction in between the tug of war competitions, where numerous items kindly donated to us, including tickets for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in May and tickets for Deacon Blue at Newmarket Racecourse in August, were sold to raise further funds for the appeal.

A brave group of male students and members of staff also volunteered to have their legs waxed at the event to raise money too.

We look forward to announcing how much money was raised at the event soon – and sharing photos from the Colour Run, which took place after OsFest, with you all shortly!
