As I am sure your children will have explained, there has been a rather amazing discovery at Holy Trinity Primary School today.
As soon as the discovery was made the area was cordoned off. After I sent a photograph of our discovery (right) to the National Museum of Strange Objects in London, the Investigator in Chief, Dr Violet Strangeways, dispatched an Investigator to perform a site inspection and then authenticate the discovery.
I am pleased to inform you that the inspection (below) has confirmed that the area and object are 100% safe and pose no threat whatsoever to the public. What still isn’t clear however, is the identity of the object.
Dr Strangeways, from the National Museum of Strange Objects has asked me to ensure that our children remain vigilant and put all their energies into research and investigation in order to help the museum ascertain the origins of this amazing discovery. Therefore, over the next few days, all children at Holy Trinity will be helping the National Museum of Strange Objects resolve some of these unanswered questions.
In the meantime I will ensure that our website is updated regularly to keep everyone fully informed on this developing situation.
Important!On the advice of the Inspector we have moved the object from the willow dome to a secure area inside the school.
Warning!Taken from this post: Update for Parents
It has come to our attention that whilst the vast majority of the children at school were excited and engaged by this morning’s ‘discovery’ there are some who have been worried by it. We assure you that this afternoon we held an extra whole school assembly where we made it absolutely clear to everyone that the egg was of no danger to anyone, that it was safe to keep in school, and that we would therefore be able to observe it further tomorrow. We apologise if that message did not come through sufficiently and, as planned, in the follow-up assembly in the morning we will place further emphasis on it being of absolutely no danger whatsoever.
During the course of today the children have produced an enormous amount of high quality work, in a variety of forms, related to the egg and it was great to see them so engaged. Such ‘discoveries’ are quite common in primary schools across the country and are a very successful way of promoting problem solving, teamwork, group discussion and PSHE-related topics. This activity is part of our ‘No Problem’ theme this term.
Class teachers will, as ever, be available to speak to parents when school opens in the morning.
