Heathlands School in St Albans, a specialist school for deaf children, celebrated the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland with their very own Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.

The children donned an array of brightly coloured costumes to bring characters from the novel to life.

The Mad Hatter, living playing cards, characters inspired by the Queen of Hearts and even Alice herself were visible around the school site as staff and students embraced the Carroll themed festivities.

The day featured games including Queen of Hearts croquet, ‘I’m late’ White Rabbit sack races and pin the tail on the Cheshire cat.

Heathlands School offers support for profoundly deaf children aged between three and 16 years old. The school will celebrate its 40th anniversary this year.
