Thank you so much to everyone who came to represent Ivy Chimneys Primary School in the Remembrance Day Parade and wreath laying.
Our pupils were a credit to the school as they paraded in front of the community of Epping. There were many of our pupils who turned up representing other community organisations, such as the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Brownies, Guides and Air Cadets.
Lewis and Amy were chosen to lay the wreath at the War Memorial and did it with great respect and thoughtfulness for the soldiers who died for us.
A very poignant day which gave us all time for reflection.
Those attending the annual Epping Town Show were in for a treat this year. The charity wheelbarrow race had an extra entry... two fresh faced individuals in Ivy Chimneys school uniform strode purposefully towards the start line, proudly displaying their painted barrow, complete with blackboard graffiti.
The entries were organised into 3 heats, with local businesses fielding teams for this fantastic event. Ivy were drawn in heat 3, against some very tough opposition in the shape of firefighters and burly builders!
Sam Roberts took the handles first, with Mr Jones sitting pretty in the barrow. A flying start, excellent swap-over and determined return leg were sadly not enough to finish in the top two and qualify for the finals.
Well done to everyone who came along to support the event, a lot of money was raised for some very deserved local charities.
