The new Year 7 pupils at FHS put down their roots by planting fruit trees with their tutor groups.

The new Year 7 pupils at FHS put down their roots by planting fruit trees with their tutor groups. 

Each group has a tree they can watch growing over their five years with the school and parents and carers carers proudly joined their children for this momentous occasion at the start of the new school year. 

This is just one element of the carefully constructed transition programme at FHS, which has included one-to-one appointments, games events, a transition day/evening and a summer camp.

Natalie Thompson, Transition Co-ordinator, commented: "This event is such a special occasion for our Year 7 students; it's a symbolic way of celebrating their start to secondary education, it gives them a sense of unity and fulfilment, and of course they can enjoy watching their tree blossom over their years at Fairfield."
