Horticultural Show 2015

A BIG thank you to all the children, parents, grandparents, staff and governors who entered into the spirit of our second, horticultural show yesterday, and to RHS gardener John Hickling who led the auction of goods and produce at the end.  We raised just short of £180 for the School Fund (which will help subsidise the cost of the panto trip for every child in December).

Every child had something to be proud of in the show.

There were some very well-observed paintings, and as always, amongst so many and diverse entries, there was a very high standard of cakes and buns, and some highly entertaining vegetable animals !

This year, we also received some exquisite knitting and crochet work from grownups.

In the staff section, all three of our dinner ladies won a First prize – Miss Walker won ‘Best Cake’, Mrs. Bird ‘Best I made this!’ and Mrs. Kirk, “I tried!”

Mr. Birkett, our Evolve Health Mentor, created three buns decorated to the Enderby Road theme, which sold for £7 in the auction!

Our horticultural show is a community event, the real highlight of which is the excitement and amazement of the children when they come into the hall and view such a wide variety of produce and crafts on display.  A few First Prizes are awarded (the prize is 50p), and my thanks to our independent judges – one Year 2 pupil jumped for joy at his First card!

 

Thank you for joining in!  Thank you for making this fun for everyone!
