Home Instead’s ‘Eggcellent Easter Envelope Eggstravaganza’

We are really proud to have supported Home Instead’s ‘Eggcellent Easter Envelope Eggstravaganza’ initiative. We contributed a book of poems written by Dorcan Academy students and some sunflower seeds to plan and enjoy at home.

We hope that our contributions lifted the spirits of those self-isolating due to being vulnerable in the Covid pandemic.

Here is one of the poems by Year 7 student, Lily-Rose:

Whilst the world is stood still.

A virus then lockdown, everything stops, only essential services like farmers sowing crops.

Whilst the human race stays at home and put their lives on hold, the first signs of life bloom and delicately unfold.

Daffodils, snowdrops and crocuses to, flourish season after season just to be there for you. They brighten our life through the hard year, through meadows, valleys and hills they appear. As nature prevails, at least we all know, if we are kind to nature, year after year it will grow.
