Thought of the week

This week’s thought is all about compassion, one of the character traits that we look for within our Character Award Program. In assembly today we learned how one shopkeeper from India had set up a school under a bridge, using his own money to buy materials for learning. Amazing compassion for those in need. We also realised that we cannot be compassionate without paying attention to others, trying to understand their situations, thoughts and feelings.

Library challenge

This morning the pupils had a special assembly to introduce this year’s library challenge. This free scheme at all local libraries involves the children solving the mystery by reading 6 books over the course of the summer. There are plenty of rewards available for all budding detectives!
