Pupils from a Hitchin school have been busy helping out in the community.
Considerate youngsters from Wilshere-Dacre Junior Academy went out into the Hitchin community to brighten up places – and add a smile to people’s days. The initiative, called Wilshere Wonder Week, followed on from the school’s highly-praised ‘Good Deed Day’ two years ago.
Teacher Tessa Alexander told the Comet: “We decided to send our pupils into the community again to help out.
“Every child went out into the town to perform good deeds, and helpful, thoughtful acts.
“They did everything from washing fire engines to singing to residents at various care homes, read stories to younger children from Strathmore Infant and Nursery on Old Hale Way as well as York Road infants.
“They also tidied up various parks areas as well as the Triangle Garden at Ransom’s Recreation Ground.
“They even had a chance to show the residents of Westbourne House how to use modern technology and in turn took part in flower arranging for the resident’s rooms.
“They all thoroughly enjoyed the week and it was great to make links and meet people young and old from Hitchin.”
