Over a hundred pupils, staff, parents and members of the Hulland Ward community joined The Vice Lord Lieutenant of Derbyshire, Colonel John Wilson OBE, to plant one of the Queen’s Jubilee trees in celebration of the 150th anniversary of Hulland CE Primary School on Friday.

The tree was the last of nearly a hundred trees planted by parents and children this week (National Tree Planting week) to make a brand new woodland trail around the school grounds.

Head Teacher Wendy Underwood explains, “We have had a very special week in school. One day, we all came dressed as we would have in 1863 when the school was built. We practised our 3 ‘R’s and the cane and dunce’s cap caused quite a stir with the children!

‘We have been deeply touched by the support of our community during this project and our sincere thanks go to parent Kath Stapley and her team of staff and volunteer parents who masterminded the 150th anniversary ‘Walk on the Wild Side’ project. They have given so much of their time to create this incredible living tribute to our school. The special planting ceremony was also made possible with fantastic support from Awards For All, The Conservation Volunteers, The Woodland Trust and The Tree Council.”
