Easter chicks, bunnies and dinosaurs at Cliftonville primary parade

Easter hats at Cliftonville primary

Little ones at Cliftonville Primary School have taken part in their annual Easter bonnet parade today (April 4).

Children and parents pulled out all stops to make a spectacular array of bonnets featuring everything from Easter bunnies and chicks to dinosaurs!

All 360 children in year R, 1 and 2 wore a hat and when they sat together in the hall it was a sea of colour.  Members of the community joined the gathering to hear the children’s songs and see the hats. The school’s newly hatched chicks as special guests too!

Assistant head teacher Heather Weitzel said: “With our beautiful singing, colourful hats and lovely little chicks, we hope our guests who come from the local area, Grosvenor Court care home and Holy Trinity Church, had a nice time, and left knowing how lovely our school and its children are.

“Last year we were so disappointed that the rain meant we had to cancel our parade in the afternoon to parents. However this year the sun shone beautifully and our children were able to proudly display their hats and waved happily to parents, friends and relatives who turned up in their hundreds to see them​.”
