Year 7 students at Fairfield High School put down roots at Tree Planting Ceremony

New Year 7 students at Fairfield High School have put down their roots by planting fruit trees with their tutor groups.

Each group has a tree they can watch growing over their five years at the school and parents/carers proudly joined them for the momentous occasion.

The Tree Planting Ceremony is just one element of the carefully constructed transition programme for children at FHS, which also includes one-to-one appointments, games events, a transition day/evening and a summer camp.

Natalie Thompson, Transition Co-ordinator explains:

“This event is such a special occasion for our Year 7 students; it’s a symbolic way of celebrating their start to secondary education, it gives them a sense of unity and fulfilment, and of course they can enjoy watching their tree blossom over their years at Fairfield.”

Fairfield High School is holding some upcoming Autumn open events – for dates and details please see the Bishopston Mum What’s On Page.
