We had a great time talking to parents and students in Queen’s Park, in North-West London, for the annual Queen’s Park Day event.
Tens of thousands of people turned out to enjoy spectacular Autumn weather. The fair was incredibly vibrant, heaving with families on a day out. A vast range of stalls offered everything from a portable boxing ring to a giant hog roast! We enjoyed the freshly pressed apple juice and loved chatting to other local businesses.
For our stall we brought a large assortment of absolutely essential paraphernalia, from huge numbers of multi-coloured balloons to a Giant Connect Four to thousands of fun stickers saying ‘Too Cool For School’ that were a huge hit with many of the kids who came to talk to us.
It was great to see some old friends, and even better to have a chat with enormous numbers of kids and parents interested in tutoring and just generally to have a ball! We ‘deliberately’ lost dozens of games of Giant Connect Four and gave away highly valued balloons as prizes.
We also really valued the event as it gave us more insight into local schools and the concerns and priorities of local parents and students. We’re looking forward to Queen’s Park Day 2016!
