Tibshelf Infant & Nursery School pupils took part in the event yesterday (Tuesday, March 23) as part of a national initiative organised by Marie Curie and the Church of England.

As well as dressing up in yellow and tying ribbons to the school gates, pupils also showed off the daffodils they had earlier planted as part of the Tibshelf community bulb planting initiative.

Headteacher Zoe Andrews said: “What a fantastic day of reflection at Tibshelf Infant and Nursery School.

"More than 200 children and staff wore something yellow to commemorate this important day in history that we have all been a part of.

"Coronavirus has affected everyone in our school community differently, but together we have overcome many difficult times and celebrated many significant events.”
