Tree Dressing

Local School Involved in Singing event and Tree Blessing!

 

Oak Tree Primary School recently visited Jubilee Tesco on two occasions this week, singing to shoppers and then working alongside the Tesco staff to bless a local tree.

 

The school choir visited to Tesco Jubilee on 7th December, to sing for shoppers on Thursday afternoon. The children were welcomed to the store and sang their Christmas song repertoire near the main entrance as shoppers came and left the store. Donations were collected by the pupils towards the school funds and raised £?.

 

On the morning of 12th December two classes worked with Oak Tree Conservation Group, Sherwood Forest Trust and Tesco staff to create bird feeder pinecones, fat balls and string peanuts. Later that afternoon they all walked on to Oak Tree Heath to hang the bird feeders and to bless the Scots Pine tree with prayers and songs. The blessing was led by Vicar Phil Stead of St Albans Church in Forest Town.

 

Pupils, teachers and community leaders then returned to the Tesco store to have a hot drink and biscuit, before walking back to school with a present from the store for the children who had taken part.

 

Oak Tree Primary School Head Mark Thrower said “Our School Choir is going from strength to strength. Tesco’s is one of the children’s favourite places to perform.

We had lots of lovely comments from the public and wish to thank them for the donations made. The children certainly enjoyed the experience.”

 

We are pleased the annual tree dressing has continued for another year. It is one of our established Christmas traditions continued by a great partnership between with the school, the Tesco store and a key community group all working together to support local wildlife while creating a great activity memory for the children.”
