Hapton primary school’s scarecrow festival
Almost 20 colourful scarecrows were registered into a south Norfolk school last week as part of its harvest celebrations.
As part of Hapton VC Primary School's harvest celebrations this year, the school decided to have a scarecrow festival. Nineteen scarecrows were brought into the small school, which has 32 pupils, on Thursday together with their beaming and proud creators.
The scarecrows ranged from just 12inches high to full size and included a canoeist, a dairy farming scarecrow complete with milking gear and a cow and an authentic scarecrow taken out of his field that very morning.
After a packed and enthusiastic harvest service in Hapton church, everyone walked back to school to enjoy the scarecrow display and to enjoy a well-deserved cup of tea and cakes and biscuits made by the pupils.
Linda McCormick and Louise Hinton, co-headteachers said that it was one of the most enjoyable and successful Harvest celebrations to date.
