HATS ON TO JOIN EASTER PA­RADE

Rouse Hill Times - - NEWS -

A SEA of vi­brant hats bobbed through the streets of Quak­ers Hill last week when Barnier Pub­lic School young­sters par­tic­i­pated in an Easter pa­rade.

The 125 Year 1 pupils made their way to Quak­ers Hill Nurs­ing Home to visit res­i­dents as part of the tradition, which started with a walk from Barnier Drive to the Ham­ble­don Rd aged-care home.

An Easter bunny also made an ap­pear­ance.

Barnier Pub­lic School li­ai­son of­fi­cer An­drew Whit­ney said chil­dren re­ceived a warm wel­come from res­i­dents.

“They ab­so­lutely love it. A num­ber of res­i­dents are grand­par­ents of kids here,’’ he said.

It was the sec­ond year the school had par­tic­i­pated in the event.

“As a school we like to reach out to our com­mu­nity a lit­tle bit and we know Quak­ers Hill had the ter­ri­ble in­ci­dent with the fire (in 2011) and thought it would be nice to reach out to the com­mu­nity,’’ he said.
