After winning the PTA auction, 7-6 were treated to a wonderful afternoon tea on the 11th of October. The hall was beautifully decorated, confectionary and cakes adorned the stunning table and delicious sandwiches too. The fizzy lemonade was served by the staff and the food was delicious. The best thing about the afternoon tea was knowing the fact that the staff and parents had organised this just for 7-6. That, and of course being called madam! Overall, the afternoon tea was just exceptional and everyone in 7-6 had bucket loads of fun.
