Children from the three New City College nurseries – at Arbour Square, Hackney and Havering – were excited to pay their very own special tribute to the heroic Captain Sir Tom Moore on Thursday 4th February.
The children walked 100 steps around the beautiful forest gardens at Arbour Square, E1, and around the outside play area at Ardleigh Green, Havering. At Hackney campus, they walked in a line around the college grounds. They then clapped 100 times before proudly holding up colourful posters of Sir Tom.
The super happy toddlers beamed as they marched in a line, led by nursery staff, who encouraged them to count out loud to 100. After clapping for one hundred times, the children were told about the inspirational Captain and how he had recently reached 100 years old.
They heard how he had walked around his garden 100 times, and how the money he had raised was helping the doctors and nurses of the NHS to care for people the children might know who were sick.
