Haddenham St. Mary's CE School: Musical Santa Stroll
Children, parents, teachers and carers met at the Catholic Church early one morning in December and walked through the village in the morning sunshine to the School wearing Santa hats whilst playing musical instruments and getting into the festive spirit! For lots more photos, see here.
This event was arranged by the school's Travel Plan committee as an incentive to encourage children to walk to school, be aware of traffic, wear hi-vis jackets and do something together.
On arrival in the playground the children were offered tangerines if they wished and parents hot drinks and a festive biscuit. This has now become an annual event at the school and is always very well received by all! The children were also invited to stick a lead on the Advent tree if they walked, scooted or cycled to school.
This happens each Wednesday in December. There is a parking exclusion zone where parents can park up and walk, also known as 'park and stride' so everyone can benefit! It was wonderful seeing so much support from parents and teachers at the event this year.
Due to the success of this event, we are considering a Spring themed one for next term, watch this space!
