Yester Pole is Totem-ally Fantastic


On Tuesday 30th January the whole school came out to watch the unveiling of our new full size totem pole.  Last year’s P5 pupils designed planned and designed this as part of a project on John Muir.  All of the class entered a competition to create the faces on the pole and the four winning entries were then marked out on a good quality tree trunk.  The whole class helped to chisel out the timber with professional help from local sculptor, Robin Wood.  We made contact with Robin through one of our business partners, the Chippendale School of Furniture.

 The pole was set in the ground by one of our parents who is an professional fencer (enclosing fields, not using swords!).  Ms Pinkerton, the NQT who led the project with P5 last year, officially unveiled the totem pole in front of children, staff and local press.
