National Ice Cream Day at Hampton

Term 2

National Ice Cream Day at Hampton

This year’s National Ice Cream Day was a wonderful experience for pupils at Hampton School who were given a special ice cream treat by the Angel Berry team.

National Ice Cream Day became an official food holiday in 1984 when President Ronald Reagan of the United States declared the month of July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day.

Our pupils enjoyed several flavours of tasty, creamy ice cream; we seized the opportunity to explore the history of ice cream, as well as the manufacturing process through engaging presentations and activities. Ice cream is a significant part of childhood and our pupils were fascinated as they learned about it. Our pupils also took part in in several fun activities and drawing competitions. It was a joyful experience to watch them play, learn, and interact with their peers through their shared love of ice cream.

At Hampton School, we are so passionate about harnessing in-class and out-of-class activities to give our pupils the absolute best learning experiences. We are extremely proud of using this year’s National Ice Cream Day to create a memorable experience for our pupils.

Our special thanks go to the Angel Berry team for spending time with us to create happy memories our pupils will forever cherish.


Nothing Quite Stacks Up Like Pancake Day at Hampton!

Term 1

Hampton Pupils Learning How To Make Pancakes

Pancake Day is a crowd favorite at Hampton School. Our day care, pre-primary, and primary school pupils gobbled down their very own pancake creations during this special themed education day.

This event, planned by our dedicated staff, helped to meet Hampton School’s mission of developing well-rounded pupils who are uniquely educated. The goal is to leave the pupils with greater knowledge and lasting memories. This type of educational event is one of many examples that sets Hampton apart from other schools.

As mentioned, one of the highlights of the day was the opportunity each student had to create their own pancakes. To help achieve this we invited qualified Chefs to our school! Cooking can teach pupils a number of valuable skills, from measurements to fine motor skills and beyond. Our pupils are important to us, and we want to make sure they are receiving a holistic education. Our staff works diligently to ensure that all pupils are receiving the education that will be a foundational step to a bright future.

Everyone at Hampton School would like to give a big thanks to Chef Dhomun and Chef Avinash Cheenatur for their enthusiasm and care when teaching our pupils how to cook. Judging by their grins, we’re sure our pupils enjoyed every moment of this cooking masterclass!

Celebrating the Chinese New Year in STYLE!

Term 1

Hampton School pupils celebrate the Year of The Rat!

The Chinese New Year, or the Lunar New Year, is a festival of celebrations that begins at the start of the Chinese calendar New Year. In 2020, this celebration fell on January 25. Each new year is known as the year of a certain animal. This year is the year of the Rat.

Celebrations typically include red decorations, as red is a color of luck in Chinese tradition; time with family and friends; and enjoying tasty food.

Our pupils in our Day care, Pre-Primary and Primary department fell suite with these traditions this year, as they made Chinese lanterns and other art pieces. As part of their weekly cooking class pupils also learned how to make some traditional Chinese snacks in the school kitchen.

The celebration, which takes a lot of planning on the part of Hampton staff, was celebrated over the span of a week where pupils were able to learn more about the Chinese culture and this fantastically interesting holiday. This is just another way we at Hampton work hard to provide a unique learning experience to our pupils.
