Memorial Garden Opening

We celebrated the opening of our memorial garden.  We were joined by the families of some of our pupils who have passed away. 🤍 

 We held a ceremony in the memorial garden, where we shared poems and readings chosen by the families. Pupils from our Signing Choir welcomed guests into the ceremony by performing ‘This little light of mine’. Abdullah,one of our teaching assistants recited from the Quran. 

To make the event extra special, we were joined by some special guests. Ismail Hussain sang for us and we really enjoyed an upbeat performance by Punjabi Roots, who played a Bhangra version of an Ed Sheeran song. 

Some children visited the ceremony and placed windmills in the ground and also planted some flowers in the memory of the children. 🌸 

We finished the ceremony by watching a slideshow of the children, with some of their favourite songs in the background. 

We were very nervous about holding an outside event as it had been an incredibly rainy week, however it stayed dry and the sun even shone for us as we blew bubbles into the sky! 🫧 

Whilst the ceremony was taking place, the pupils were having their own memorial celebration in the hall. The performers joined the children which provided the pupils with an opportunity to experience very contrasting live performances which they found highly engaging. 

We had a wonderful and poignant afternoon, where we laughed, cried and danced as we thought about all of the fantastic times that we once shared with our Delius Stars ⭐
