Thatcher Brook Teachers get creative…

The teachers at Thatcher Brook Primary School were invited to an after-school lantern making session earlier this week; incredibly, 26 teachers showed up to create a luminary for this year’s River of Light – an all-time record!
But Mandy Couturier has to win the prize for the most inspired take on the theme of BUGS!, with her depiction of some beetles 🙂

 

The Jellyfish Factory…

Even in the last few days, people are working hard in the Jellyfish factory at Thatcher Brook in Waterbury. Yesterday I was lucky enough to walk in on the tail-end of a teachers’ workshop. It was a delight to see the teaching staff of TBPS laughing and working together to make these quick and effective lanterns to carry in the parade–the addition of different yarn scraps and a glitter glaze in the glue really transforms these simple forms.
