Decorating Christmas Trees For Charity
This year saw Junior Girls, Senior Girls and Senior Boys each sponsoring a tree again at St Luke’s Church in Maidenhead for the church’s eighth Christmas Tree Festival.
The annual event sees the church buy trees which are then decorated by businesses and groups from across the Borough. Visitors vote for their favourite displays with funds going to Myeloma UK.
Each School division made the tree their own, and they were greatly admired by those who visited for the concert and Christmas Tree Service.
Junior Girls made a kindness rainbow tree. Each class had an allocated colour and they made a kindness paper chain with a kind wish or word on.
After discussing what Christmas means to them, Year 7 girls decorated wooden ornaments and made paper chains. The form captains and deputy form captains had the honour of decorating the tree for the year group.
Senior Boys decorated their tree in the theme of science. The decorations were made by a Year 7 class in one of their lessons and then three boys decorated the tree. The decorations consisted of coloured conical flasks illuminated using Christmas lights, plastic pipettes filled with different coloured liquids and hung upside down to look like icicles, DNA helixes made using K'Nex that were draped like tinsel, and other decorations which consisted of models of different chemical molecules. An upside down volumetric flask filled with coloured liquid was placed on top of the tree.
Well done everyone!
