A New Beginning For Firs Hill
by Rob Smith

The forecast rain wasn’t going to stop the event of the day, all roads leading to the grand opening of Firs Hill Primary School’s new sports facility.

Approaching the now familiar tiger emblazoned gates, the sound of young singing voices caused me, and I guess those already present, to forget momentarily that there was any rain falling from that afternoon sky.

After some of the children took part in a game facilitated by Burngreave Sports Development Team, headteacher Dina Martin was proud to announce the time had arrived for the grand opening of the new sports facility by Premiership referee Uriah Rennie. Cheers and applause sounded out as the opening ceremony was completed, before people moved out of the rain and into the school building.

Buns.Inside we were greeted by stalls of sweets, cakes, and bric-a-brac, treasure hunts, bouncy castles and many children’s games. Although the forecast meant rain outside, inside Firs Hill Primary School the sound of so much joy and laughter murmured the beginning of spring and something of a new beginning for a new generation.
