Branching out for the festive season

The latest initiative to mark our landmark 50th anniversary and has grown from collaboration with Insch-based Iris McArthur of The Christmas Decorators to install a unique festive tree in school this year.

As well as bringing some festive cheer to pupils, staff and visitors, the tree will give an opportunity to share winter and festive memories by adding personalised stars to the tree’s decorations. The project is the brainchild of ISA parent Gemma Bertolotto and aims to create a focal point for bringing members of the ISA school community together for some seasonal reflection during ISA’s milestone year.

Commenting on the project, our Head of School Nick Little said: “We are delighted to work with Gemma and Iris to create this opportunity to bring people together. Inclusivity sits front and centre of our ethos and this project is perfectly aligned with our values across the school."

Iris McArthur of The Christmas Tree Decorators added: “I am thrilled to play a part in helping ISA mark this very special year and I hope that the tree, including its very special star decorations, will create a fitting place for members of the school community to come together.”

The Christmas Decorators specialise in the design and installation of interior and exterior festive lighting and Christmas decorations for businesses and residential properties. It is the only Christmas company of its kind in the UK and is represented across the country in a range of locations, with Aberdeenshire a recent addition to the list.

We are overjoyed to have something the students can take part in together to celebrate the holiday season. A huge thank you to Gemma, Iris and the team for your wonderful winter work of art you have created for us!
