Window Wanderland 2023 – March 4 to 6

St Bonaventure’s Primary School is delighted to be launching and hosting the 2023 Bishopston Window Wanderland. This colourful, creative annual event will kick into life with a special launch evening on the St Bon’s school playground, starting at 6pm on Saturday 4 March.

As well as having the chance to take in all the school windows that have been lovingly decorated by our pupils, there will be refreshments served 6—7.30pm, light projections and entertainment on hand. It’s a fun way to start an event that we, as a school, are immensely proud to be part of.

And it’s all happening thanks to Hannah, one of our amazing governors. She’s been taking part in the festival since 2015. After hearing that it might not happen in 2023, due to long-term volunteer Sue Powell wishing to take a step back and a lack of new volunteers, Hannah approached our St Bon’s Head, Sarah Ballantine. Together, they rallied the extraordinary St Bon’s PTFA. And this is the result! We must say thank you again to Hannah and the PTFA – they’ve really stepped up to the challenge and 2023 is going to be a brilliant Window Wanderland.

We’re proud to take part as our school sits in the heart of Bishopston – and community means everything to us. It embodies our St Bon’s values, brings neighbourhoods together, reduces social isolation, and inspires creativity – all things very close to our hearts at St Bon’s. We’ve always taken part in the festival, displaying our pupils’ work in the windows of Lynne Fernandes Opticians on Gloucester Road.

And in March 2023, we’re going all out – with our school windows being taken over by our children. We’d all be delighted if you could join us for this special launch evening. Have a window wander with a warming hot chocolate. Feast your eyes on our children’s creativity and help us get the Bishopston Window Wanderland 2023 off to a wonderfully colourful start!

Get involved

Here at St Bon’s we invite all of you to get creative in your own homes and be part of the 2023 trail. You can choose to do anything you like for your windows: use paper, Lego, lights, anything glows! Let your imaginations run wild.
