Alum reconnected with each other and their children made new friends during Alum Family Fun Day.
November 9, 2017
Alum Families at Play
Giggling toddlers, dancing children and smiling parents were all part of the crowd at our Alum Family Fun Day on the weekend. The Athletics and Wellness Centre turned into a magical playground as the Branksome Hall Alumnae Association brought many alum back to the school to enjoy fun and games with their families.

“It has been great to see old friends and even teachers,” said Raewyn ROBBINS Fahlenbock’04. With the smell of popping popcorn and fresh donuts in the air, hundreds of Branksome alum mingled with their little ones and spouses, enjoying endless activities and treats. Alum reconnected with each other and their children made new friends.

“It’s nice to reconnect and show them [the children] what it was like to come here, we enjoy the nostalgia,” said Jennifer LISCIO’93.

There was no shortage of entertainment for young and old, including a strolling magician, bouncy castles and face painting. “We’re having a blast. We love the bouncy castle and arts and crafts; its been lovely,” said Martha RAHILLY Weeman’96. In between jumping through an obstacle course and eating all the delicious snack food, children lined up to get their favourite superhero, princess, or animal painted on their face.

Pompoms, pipe cleaners, glitter and paint were in high demand at the arts and crafts station where children of all ages decorated picture frames. For those interested in experiments, the dinosaur adventures science show was a showstopper. Children were keen to volunteer during the demonstration, adding ingredients one at a time to create different chemical reactions.

By the end of the day, everyone was busting out their best moves when Sonshine and Broccoli jumped on stage. The musical performance was a real crowd pleaser, with children dancing and singing along during the high-energy interactive dance party.
