Red to Racism Day 2019

IMG 1850

Red to Racism Day 2019.

Last Friday, we had our second 'Red to Racism' Day. As part of our understanding of Global Citizenship with the Green Schools, we celebrate the many nationalities that make up our school. We have 20 nations represented in our school from all parts of the world! Indeed, we have a link to each of the six inhabited continents! (no one from Antartica yet!!) The children loved dressing in red and the school was a sea of colour as we celebrated being one school from many places!

Green Schools - Global Citizenship Litter and Waste

The Green Schools' Committee are hard at work at the moment as we prepare for our school assessment visit for our sixth green flag. Activities during the year thus far include Climate Action Week, including Giving Racism the Red Card, planning for International Day and consistent monitoring of our waste management, which of course was the first green flag we achieved. The committee have put a big emphasis on Fair Trade goods and the countries of origin of the food eaten daily.

The children of the Green School's Committee are pictured below in front of their very colourful and informative Green Schools' Noticeboard

Jumble Sale 2018

Health Promoting School Poster

The Health Promoting School Committee have been working on a huge poster for the HPS Noticeboard. Every child in the school designed their own avatar to represent themselves and each and every one is contained on the poster. The title of the poster is "In this school we all stick together" as the HPS works on inclusivity in our school. Well done to the HPS Committee on producing a beautiful piece. When you are in the school, make sure to check out the original!
