School makes it snow for its students

Published

on

A school has brought its own Christmas cheer for the students in a very festive way.

Reigate Grammar School created its very own snow day by importing industrial snow machines into the playground of the Reigate Road school for the last break time of the year.

Students enjoyed hot chocolate and donuts as they scampered after the snowflakes pumped into the air before a final assembly featuring a Latin translation of Disney’s “Let it go” from Frozen sung by first form girls.

Shaun Fenton, Headmaster said:

‘We were all slightly gutted to be the only corner of the country to miss out on snow days so we made some! And, then we rounded off the snowy celebrations with what we believe was the world premiere performance of Let it Go in Latin. What a fun way to close out a wonderful term.’

In a tweet the headmaster also showed just how much fun the students were able to have.

New £100k pedestrian crossing for families’ taking children to school installed in West Green

West Green Primary School Business Manager Annette pictured trying the new crossing with her daughter before the school reopened.

A new pedestrian crossings has been installed in the past few months and is now operational, helping families with the walk to a school in West Green.

The crossing in Crawley cost £100,00 and is aimed to improve safety for families with school-age children – plus pedestrians generally.

With schools reopening and roads becoming busier after lockdown, people are being encouraged to leave their cars at home and consider other travel choices.

Roger Elkins, Cabinet Member for Highways and Infrastructure, said:

“The new crossings provide a safer route to schools for families and to other local amenities for pedestrians generally.

“People are being encouraged to consider walking or cycling for their journeys, if they can. It’s a great way to get fit, save fuel money and reduce the number of cars on the road. This in turn will improve air quality and reduce congestion.”

West Green Primary School requested the Puffin crossing for West Green Drive and worked with the county council’s transport improvements team to build the case for road safety improvements.

Other enhancements had already been introduced, including ‘School Keep Clear’ markings, to provide pupils and parents with a safer environment.

Throughout this process, West Green continued to provide pupils with road safety education and encourage sustainable travel.

West Green Primary School Business Manager Annette Tomsett said:

“The school is delighted to have worked closely with West Sussex County Council in bringing to fruition this crossing. It will make a huge difference in the safe route to school for our pupils and families, alongside having a positive impact for the whole community for now and for the future.”

The improvements cost a total of about £100,000.
