Hilltop's Great Get Together Picnic

Last Friday Hilltop invited parents, carers, local community organisations and friends of our school to join the children in a More in Common Celebration Picnic.  The picnic was part of the national Great Get Together weekend, which celebrates the life of the late Jo Cox MP, and promotes the values of friendship, freedom and compassion that she held so dear.


The event was an enormous success! Over 300 people attended to join in the fun in the sun, from all areas of our school community - children, their families, staff and their families, neighbours, local businesses, politicians, community leaders and many other friends of our school. 


The picnic concluded with a Celebration Assembly, and we truly believe that the event brought everyone together in a way that Jo would have been proud of.  Thank you to everyone who came along to celebrate with us.
