Choir @ Highfield Tower

Our KS2 pupils put in a great performance for the residents of Highfield Towers at their Christmas lunch last week. The pupils entertained the guests with a selection of traditional carols, from Ding Dong Merrily on High to Away In A Manger.

It was lovely to see the residents joining in when we sang. It made us sound like one huge choir!

Pupils at Broadford Primary - part of the Learning Federation, in Harold Hill - are encouraged to volunteer for a range of community events. At different points in their time in KS2 the pupils:

  • provide random acts of kindness in the community
  • support the foodbank and run sessions for pupils to explain the work it does
  • collect food and clothing for local refuges
  • sing at sheltered housing events
  • support the local pensioner's club
  • host a Church v123 family event
It is our intention to enable our pupils to see that they live in the middle of a fantastic community. We want them to be proud of coming from Harold Hill. We aim to ensure that the education they receive means they will be able to choose where they live in the future - having the freedom to buy their own house or rent their own property. If they are on Harold Hill it should be because they chose to be here, not that they are stuck.
