Lantern Parade

PRESS RELEASE - Dec 2017

 

LOCAL SCHOOL TAKES PART IN COMMUNITY LANTERN WALK.

 

Oak Tree Primary School worked in partnership with both Oak Tree Children’s Centre, Oak Tree Neighborhood Management Team and Jubilee Tesco to organize a community Lantern Walk around the estate.

 

School made sure all their pupils were aware of the event and provided the entertainment. The Children’s Centre had organized reindeer for the children to visit and crafts to take place. Oak Tree Neighborhood Management worked with Tesco to provide refreshments.

 

During the hour before the Lantern Walk people gathered at the Children’s Centre to hear the School Choir sing Christmas carols. The Samba Band performed a rendition of their performance pieces.

 

All the participants then walked around the Estate to sing Christmas songs. The event was very well attended with well over 70 people taking part.

 

Music Lead Kathryn Greenwood said “It was great to give our choir and Samba Band performers an opportunity to show what they could do. They did so well.

 

We have been supported by funding from JN Derbyshire to purchase samba equipment and by Inspire from the Old Library Theatre, who have funded a drumming expert to help us get going.

 

To have an opportunity to perform at a Christmas community event has been the icing on the cake to a brilliant term of singing and samba drumming”.

 

Oak Tree Primary School Head, Mark Thrower said

 

“We hope our school performers enjoyed being part of this event and that their skills were appreciated by the local community.

 

The event was a great start to the festive celebrations”
