150 in the playground

Earlier today the children from the Cathedral Primary School marked the Cathedral's 150th anniversary in a rather special way. Out on the playground they arranged themselves (with a little help from Miss Goddard and the staff!) in the form of a giant '150', for a photograph to be taken from the Cathedral tower. The result is quite impressive!

It had taken some time for us to find a day when everyone was free and it wasn't raining, but this afternoon everything fell into place. Here are the first of the children arriving.

In this picture you can see the numbers beginning to form on the playground. There were quite a number of mobile phone calls between the playground and the tower top in order to ensure that everything looked right!

When the official photographs were finished, the children waved their hands in celebration of a job well done. You can keep up with events at the Cathedral Primary School on their blog, which has recently featured the appointment of the new head boy and girl and their deputies, plus Miss Goddard in the Philippines handing over money raised by the Cathedral School for children in that country. You can find the school blog here.
