We had our playgroup Christmas party last wednesday. The teachers did a wonderful job and organised a trip out to a soft play centre along with lunch. Playgroup paid for the coach trip and also a gift for each child. The teachers did an amazing job and also managed to organise a raffle (of which I won quite a few things) which helped towards paying for the trip.
The previous years the Committee had purchased hampers for the teachers, but this year we heard back from the grapevine that something other than a hamper would be appreciated. So the Committee members racked our brains and and came up with tickets to a show or something they could do as a group. In the end we opted for a day spa voucher at a luxury hotel, which included lunch, tea and nibbles and use of all the facilities.
I think it is well deserved, I can’t think of a better treat than a day (child-free) being pampered and looked after. Sometimes ‘me’ time is good. I think they were pleased with the gift.
