Congratulations to all the children (and parents!) Every child in the Hall on Monday at the start of Assembly was wearing correct uniform! blazers for most and sports uniform for some! Well done. This makes my Recesses much happier, as I don t have to have any children on detention!
Assembly has taken on a new look and the essence of it is the participation of the children, and the music ah, the music!
After the Prayers, Creed, National Anthem and School Values, we have the delight of Henry B and Carys H leading the week’s hymn. The first verse is sung by these Choristers and then the School joins in with the following verses; the hymn is accompanied by Mrs. Tomicki on the piano and children from 4th Class playing on their recorders. It is wonderful.
Another aspect of the new style Assembly is the presentations by children to the whole school either work from their classes or other activities. The outstanding presentation this term has been from 5th Class who have embraced the Jump for Heart skipping campaign by the Heart Foundation. 5th Class has advertised and promoted this fund-raising effort, encouraging children in other classes to skip and seek sponsors. There has been a weekly update on money raised, and it has almost reached $2,500. A magnificent effort. We see the children skipping away at Recess times.
At the end of the Assembly, Mrs. Tomicki plays the piano whilst the children leave quietly.
So this is the new, very interactive Monday Assembly.
Parents are welcome to attend from time to time and at their convenience. I encourage you to come along!
