Year 6 had an amazing day in London- visiting Parliament, walking around Westminster, enjoying the views across London from the Eye. They even found time for some healthy food 😯. The Queen was in town for the Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey, but our schedules did not overlap!
Year 6 were invited to send representatives to attend a Swanage Town Council Beach Management Committee meeting. They were exceptionally fortunate as the meeting took place at the town’s new RNLI Station, which is still being completed and is closed to the public. They were the first school group to have a tour!
The School Council and Green Team members discussed aspects of the town’s tourism industry with their families and peers before each writing two questions to ask at the meeting.
Their questions were:
- Why are there no bins on the beach?
- Could we have a splash park in the town?
- Why is there no green area where we can play sport without dogs mess?
- Why do boats come so close to the shoreline?
- Can you make the locks on the toilet doors easier to use?
- Could you close the seafront all year around?
They brought the committee’s answers back to share with their classmates.
Mrs Meteau’s class have been discussing British Values and making posters of each value to display in their classroom.
Thanks to Bea from CAFOD who visited us again this term. She told us about how special wiggly worms are transforming life for poor farmers in Bolivia.
Many thanks to all parents, carers and friends who contributed so wonderfully to our Harvest Mass offering to the Swanage Food Bank.
It was lovely to welcome Brother John to our school once again. We held a celebration assembly and Brother John visited each class during the course of his week with us. The children are fascinated to hear about the life of his school in Uganda, and the lives of the children there. We fundraise all year round to help and it is rewarding for us all to see and hear about the changes Brother John has been able to make at Dr Archbishop Kiwanuka School & Nakirebe Primary School.
