Mazey Day 2019Posted on: 24/07/2019
Humphry Davy School wowed onlookers as we proudly paraded through the streets of Penzance on this year’s annual Mazey Day celebration. Taking part in both the 11am and 3pm parades, we showcased our incredible Orangutan; complete with towering trees and dancing bananas! Our impressive structure was created by students and the wider school community in the weeks leading up to this iconic day.
This year the theme was ‘Golowan Goes Green’ and it was spectacular to see everyone’s take on it. Our school’s focus was the deteriorating population of Orangutans due to deforestation. Wearing brightly coloured green t-shirts to represent the natural environment that we so crucially need to save, we made our way down Market Jew Street. With everyone smiling and dancing, our brilliant musical students followed in the parade, playing the well-known song ‘I wanna be like you’ from Disney’s, The Jungle Book.
Humphry Davy students also showed off their talents with a variety of musical performances at the Humphry Davy Statue again this year, adding to the festivity and atmosphere of the day. The performances were well received with each one ending with enthusiastic applause.
We are very proud to support the Golowan Festival each year and always love taking part in the festivities. We are already looking forward to next year’s event! Take a look at our website to see videos of the day and the making of ‘Bruce’ the Orangutan!
We raised a brilliant £90 on the day selling our lovely ‘Bruce the Orangutan’ bags. This money is being donated to ‘Orangutan Appeal UK’, who are dedicated to the rehabilitation and preservation of orangutans and the conservation of their habitat.
