On Tuesday 22nd November, the children and staff at Trinity Church School were joined by local author Beverley Douglas; sculptor Simon Probyn; Pamela Young from Radstock in Bloom and Don Morris the CEO of the Radstock CO-OP for the opening of our sculpture garden.
The November sun shone and the ceremony started with everyone singing one of our favourite songs, ‘Tower of Strength’. The cutting of the ribbon was then conducted by Beverley and Simon whilst we all eagerly looked on. Later in the morning, we took part in collective worship and discovered that Beverey’s book was all about her own life as a child and we are excited to be working with her in the New Year. Simon then described how he designed and engineered the seating area to match the magnificence and ethos of our sculpture ‘Acceptance’. We then watched a video of each class describing their feelings and sharing poems, songs and thoughts all inspired by the sculpture garden.
Since this time, we have reflected and have said, “The area represents our friendship and team work” and “The hands show trust, courage, respect and friendship and the garden inspires us to show our Christian values each day.”
