Today we had a wonderful surprise visit from Ms Lund the Assistant Headteacher at Rayner Stephens. She presented Sam with 8 books for winning a competition set on their Open Evening. Sam loves reading and this is the perfect prize for him. Out of 10, Sam said this was 11! Thank you to Rayner Stephens.

We raised money for Macmillan at school today, with non-uniform and cakes. Thank you to all the families who donated cakes and also attended our fund raising. We will share what we have raised as soon as we know. Think everyone now needs a lie down from all the yummy treats we have had. 

Worry Wizard Visit

Today our Wellbeing Team met the Worry Wizard herself - Amy Smythe. They ate biscuits, talked about their role in school and played a wellbeing game. Our champions have more assembly ideas and have some great support in place for our pupils Aoife's idea is to travel away from her worries on a Chicken Mayo Wrap - which made us all giggle. Thank you to Amy for her time with our pupils.

World Peace Day 2022

2022 Theme: End racism. Build peace.

Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire.

But achieving true peace entails much more than laying down arms.  It requires the building of societies where all members feel that they can flourish. It involves creating a world in which people are treated equally, regardless of their race.
