Hats off for school’s birth­day cel­e­bra­tion

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS - By Zoe Drewett zoe.drewett@trin­i­tymir­ror.com

PUPILS spelled their mes­sage out this week: “Our school is 90!”

St He­len’s Col­lege in Park­way, Hilling­don, marked the an­niver­sary with an ac­tion packed day of events.

Young­sters learned the story of the school’s pa­tron saint, took part in a quiz, cre­ated art­work and vis­ited an ex­hi­bi­tion on the his­tory of the school to mark the an­niver­sary.

Chil­dren in the lower school pa­raded in the green and white colours of St He­len’s, wear­ing hats they had de­signed spe­cially for the cel­e­bra­tion.

Head­teacher Jill Cre­han said: “It has been won­der­ful for chil­dren through­out the school to un­der­stand that they are part of the long her­itage of St He­len’s Col­lege and to have been in­spired by the story of St He­len her­self.”

The lower and up­per school joined forces to cre­ate a gi­ant num­ber ‘90’ in the school play­ground.
