In July 2012 our Minnows Pre-School put on their End of Term Play to a packed audience of over 140 parents, grandparents and friends.
Our children had a fantastic time performing in front of their appreciative audience.
To celebrate the Diamond Jubilee our children put on a Royal Themed Show.
This theatrical event was also reported by the Portsmouth Evening News.

Our 2012 Merchistoun Minnows Preschool Summer School Trip was to Fishers Farm.
So first of all – we booked a coach to get us there – a double decker coach. This coach took us, our children, and all their parents + siblings from Horndean all the way to Wisborough Green which is near Horsham in West Sussex.
Once we had arrived – many of the children (and some of the parents) made a beeline for the bouncy cushions.
The Merry-Go-Round was very popular with our children.
We all had a barrel of fun on the Barrel Bugs ride.
We had a fantastic day out and we’d like to extend our thanks to the lovely people at Fishers Farm for making us feel so welcome.
Our Horndean located Pre-School has their own website located at www.merchistounminnows.co.uk – please do take a look around at the fun that we have and the large range of facilities offered by our Horndean Pre-School.

The Minnows Pre-School in Horndean excelled themselves this year with a fantastic Christmas show.
There were well over one hundred parents and grandparents in the audience — and they were in for a treat.
The show was split into two parts – the first part, each of child was dressed in a unique festive costume, representing a part of Christmas, and delivered their lines perfectly. The second half of the show contained Christmas songs, sung by both the Pre-School children and audience.
Standing on that stage and delivering the lines acts as a fantastic confidence boost to our children – and it is sometimes easy to forget that our ‘actors’ and ‘actresses’ range in age from just 2 year 6 months to 5 years old.
As you can see from the photographs – the delight on the children’s faces as they enter the stage – our children enjoyed themselves thoroughly – and they delivered a fantastic show!
