Talent on show in Petersfield Schools

Schools around the area have been enjoying the end of term celebrations with sporting and artistic talent celebrated at special events.

 At Petersfield Infants’ School, children showed their many talents as a competition got underway to win a Henry Adams trophy. The children, aged between four and seven, performed a variety of skills from magic tricks, guitar playing, dancing and there was even a budding gymnast who could be the next Louis Smith. 

 Craig Towersey, manager at Henry Adams, Petersfield, who presented the trophies to the worthy winners, said, “‘Petersfield Infant School’s Got Talent’ is a real highlight of my year. It is incredible to see such confidence and skill in young children and choosing only three winners was extraordinarily difficult!”

 The children were also tasked with creating imaginative Olympic themed postcards in the latest Henry Adams competition. Every child took home a certificate of thanks for their wonderful efforts and the winners from each class were awarded a Henry Adams badge.  

 “The children had a week to design their own postcard and the results were amazingly colourful and showed a real appreciation of Brazil, both as a country and as host to the Olympic Games this summer,” added Craig, who was also out and about at Sheet Primary School awarding trophies to each of the children achieving 100% attendance for the entire academic year and badges for full termly attendance. 

 Craig was also pleased to have supported Petersfield Infant School’s summer fair by supplying and manning a crown-making craft stall. Stickers and jewels were creatively applied and children were delighted to leave the stall wearing their own majestically adorned crowns.
