The last few weeks have been a whirl of festivities and Christmas celebration at Hilltop, with parties, visits from Santa, trips to Chatsworth Farmyard for the Nativity, and Churnet Valley Railway to catch the Santa Express, Christmas plays, carol-singing for the local community, Christmas Jumper Day, Christmas Dinner Day, Christmas Fair and Carols Round the Tree - phew! We even had snow, although the school can't take the credit for that!
All the pupils (and staff!) are ready for the Christmas break after such a busy time, but we would like to say thank you to the PTA who organise so many of our Christmas events, volunteers who give their time to help out, the children for throwing themselves into the activities so wholeheartedly, and the parents, carers and friends of the school who support our events.
Merry Christmas from us all at Hilltop!
