Having run a whole school competition to gather ideas for our hare’s design, it was clear that the children of Arduthis were very taken with the idea of hares as ‘moongazers’, with many linking their designs to starry nights, but also with the idea that a new day is always dawning.
Our hare has both a day and night aspect, each of which incorporates some Stonehaven landmarks, representing our local community. A selection of similar designs were chosen from across the school and merged to create our final, striking Wee Hop sculpture. Weaving through the design is a beautiful cherry blossom tree in full bloom, mirroring the trees which stand in our school garden and feature on our school badge. Symbolising new beginnings and growth, blossom is the perfect finishing touch to our hare of hope.
