SMILES ON THE ISLE!

We’re back on the Isle of Wight…Yeahhhh!

        Great Dover Park audience!

Shortly after the Easter break Mokee Joe was spotted in Lymington, sneaking aboard a ferry destined for Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. Kath and I were not surprised! This monster follows us everywhere; and so it was that the juniors of Dover Park Primary in Ryde were soon bracing themselves as Mokee Joe made himself known in their fabulous school hall on a bright-but-sunny Monday morning.

We spent a very pleasant hour and a half talking to Years 3 to 6, and by the end of the presentation they were not only keen to get their hands on the Mokee Joe books, but also to accept the challenge to have as many pupils as possible adopting the latest Molly ‘Space Buns’ hairstyle at the subsequent book signing.

    New IOW Molly Space Buns Record?

This challenge is really starting to catch on. And sure enough, the very next day no less than 15 pupils in this one-form-entry school were showing off their ‘Princess Leah’ Space Buns! Although this was a long way off the recent ‘smash record’ of 51 pairs of Space Buns, achieved just before the Easter break by Bader Primary in the NE of the mainland, we decided to accept the Dover Park effort as the current Isle of Wight record – much to their pleasure!

A big thank you to Mrs Kirby and all of the Dover Park Primary staff and pupils for giving us such a good start to our second wave of IOW school visits.
