As we are a Gold Rights Respecting School we wanted to promote rights in our wider community. We decided to make posters and ask our local community to display them so that people could read more about rights.
We took art work to St Joseph’s Parish Church, the Community Centre, the Library and our local CO-OP.
Look at our pictures to show children presenting the posters.
At our Rights Respecting Event we were joined by local schools to learn more about rights and support other schools with their Rights Respecting journey.
During Harvest our parents and carers send in food items that we package up to deliver to the older generation in our community. Every year we are pleased to see how generous our families are and the food parcels are very much appreciated by the elderly neighbours.
Following our Christmas Dinner in December this year, our Lead Ambassadors and Mrs Cockburn visited the Aged Miner’s Homes to offer a meal to our. We receive neighbours. This small gesture was very gratefully received and we had some lovely thank you notes saying how wonderful their meal was.
Local History Group
Class 4 were invited to Blackhall Primary School to meet with the local history group and learn about Remembrance Day. The history group gave a talk on World War 1 and had many artefacts for the children to learn about. They were given the opportunity to ask questions to further their knowledge.
Cannon Gaughan Cup
Our school football team took part in the Cannon Gaughan Cup and played fantastically. All children showed good sportmanship and excellent teamwork.
