St Dominic’s enters the Hambledon Village Speedwatch Scarecrow Competition

If you have had cause to drive through Hambledon Village this week, you will have noticed lots of scarecrows along the roadside.

These scarecrows are part of the village’s community speedwatch campaign.  The hope is that they will make drivers more aware of their speed and generally slow the traffic through the narrow lanes of the village by acting as constant reminders to drivers to check their speed, as well as alerting them to the presence of children.

Annie and Jenella from our Art Department worked hard at making St Dominic’s School’s entry,

which now stands proudly at the bottom of the school’s driveway.

The scarecrows will be judged by a local Police Officer on 6 October and a prize awarded.  Perhaps it will be our spectacular entry that wins……….

 

The residential special school provides highly effective services that consistently exceed the standards of good. The actions of the school contribute to significantly improved outcomes and positive experiences for children and young people. Ofsted – March 2019
