The school celebrated Commonwealth Day during the Special Assembly prepared by Yr6.2.
The 52 countries forming the Commonwealth live in Peace, Diversity and Kinship; values which are present in our school everyday life.
The original design featured a globe surrounded by 61 radiating, approximately quadrilateral, spears, which form a ‘C’ for ‘Commonwealth’.
This year, the school will be organising a series of sports days instead of one big event. There will be 4 different Sports Days which will be held in the school yard. The objective of these Sports Days is totally non-competitive. The focus is on fun, physical activity and quality time between parents and children. There will be no spectators since parents have to participate all the time with their children. So start preparing your water bottles, caps, sunglasses, sunblock and running shoes to participate.
