Bring a bucket- what a success!
I want to extend a huge and heartfelt thank you to all the children and families that supported our, 'Bring a bucket' event this afternoon. It was a mammoth task - 10 tonnes of recycled Christmas tree chippings with the vision of transporting them into the school Woods to make some clear and natural paths. Despite it being the end of the week and drizzly weather the HPS family came out in force! Children, parents, families and staff lifted, heaved, scattered and transformed the floor of our woods into one that is now well covered, spongey and sweet pine smelling. It was a wonderful example of many hands making light (er) work and the enthusiasm and positivity of the everyone there was tangible. It made me so proud to be a part of the wonderful HPS family. Thank you so much for your time, energy and effort! Thank you to the PTFA for serving warm drinks and cakes to keep the troops going and thank you to Mr Tribble for sourcing the chippings and for having the idea. We have lots more plans to continue developing our magical woods so I will be in touch with you about that soon. I can't wait to show the children the transformation next week!
