Village schools in and local to Haddenham have joined forces to create the Haddenham Area School Sports Partnership (HASSP), working together to ensure the provision of high quality sports and physical activity for their pupils.

One of the first public events that the HASSP collaboration has produced was the Spring Dance Festival, hosted at Haddenham St Mary's CE School on Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th March.

The local schools taking part were Haddenham Community Infant School, the Community Junior School, Cuddington and Dinton CE School and, of course, host school Haddenham St Mary's.

Children of all ages performed some highly energetic and creative dances, delighting a capacity audience of parents, guardians and staff.

The event was a wonderful expression of the local schools' collaboration, reflecting the obvious effort that had gone into choreographing and practising the dances and the delightful ways in which young children can be encouraged to participate in physical activities beyond the traditional sports and games.

Full marks to the staff and children!
