LKS2 Tree Dressing Day

On Monday and Tuesday, Class 6, 7 and 8 celebrated Tree Dressing Day. First, we learnt about the story behind this celebration which derived from India. The story told us that in the 17th Century, the Bishnoi people tried to protect a sacred tree – only to be killed by the Prince’s men who wanted the wood to build the Prince’s palace! We celebrated the brave Bishnoi people and trees by creating environmentally friendly decorations for the trees in the school grounds. We used scrap paper and painted with pigments made from Turmeric and Paprika from the LKS2 Art Day. Here are some pictures of our eye-catching snowflakes before they floated away after a stormy night!
