To mark the end of this year’s Royal Ascot, Truro High Prep School invited pupils, parents and teachers to put on their finest clothes and don their hats for this eagerly anticipated, stylish event.
The girls designed and created their own hats in class to complete their glamorous ensembles in preparation for the special occasion. With designs ranging from the chic delicacy of doilies used as lace trimming to sumptuous pompom adorned concoctions, the girls employed great creative skill and imagination to turn paper plates into one of a kind pieces.
The event was opened with a high spirited parade around the enclosure in order for the pupils to show off their creations.
Best hat in show winner, Prep 2 Ivy Wright said: “I really enjoyed the parade, it was so much fun to show off what we’d made. All the other hats was amazing, I can’t believe that I won. Dr Moodie liked mine so much he even tried it on.”
As well as exploring their inner fashionistas, the girls took part in a number of highly competitive races at the event. With confetti splashing water jumps, a decorate your hat relay and even a champagne waiter challenge there were plenty of opportunities for the girls to experience the racing spirit of Royal Ascot.
Head of Prep, Mrs Alison Miller said: “Ladies Day is the sort of event that makes Prep School so special. It was a fun-filled afternoon with everybody joining in with the spirit of competition and camaraderie: a real celebration of the community we have at Truro High.”
