The Granville Spring Festival is a unique event and an annual tradition which dates back to the founding of the school. Every child in the school is involved, the girls wearing delightful chaplets of flowers in their hair, whilst the boys wear buttonholes to celebrate the occasion.
Each year group performs a poem, a song and creates a giant Spring picture to decorate the walls of the Great Hall. Year 6 parents adorn the Hall with Spring flowers. Many of the songs are composed by the Year 6 girls who accompany on percussion. Themes such as new-born lambs, buzzy bees and fluffy chicks are firm favourites. Year 6 also retell the Easter story in a choral speaking presentation which is both dramatic and poignant.
Nursery children ring in the Spring, coming into the Hall with bells and entering the stage through an arch-way of decorated hoops. A song of reflection towards the end brings together the solemnity of the Easter story and the joy of new life and the Spring. A truly memorable and uplifting occasion for all.
