Bonne Année 2019!

This morning, Prep children welcomed in the New Year in a very French way and celebrated the “Epiphanie”.

The children were able to sample La Galette des Rois, a traditional cake which hides “la fève”, a charm - a figurine, inside it. The Galettes were generously provided by the French Company “Brioche Pasquier”.


The children performed the ritual of the Galette, where the youngest child goes under the table and directs the distribution of the piece of cake. The lucky person to find the “fève” becomes the King or Queen for the day, wears the paper crown and can make three wishes.

Fatima, Year 6, said ‘As I’m the youngest I can go under the table and tap everyone’s legs which is really fun.”

Charlotte, Year 3, found the charm and became Queen for the day.  She wished for a real wand. Sami who also found the charm said, ‘I wish that everyone can have a wish!”

Mrs Biggs, wished for ‘A successful start to the new STEM CREST club.


The celebration provides our children with an opportunity to experience the French ‘culture’ and they all thoroughly enjoy it.  What a fantastic way to start the New Year!

Merci à Mme Martelli and Mlle Gosselin
