Mrs Walker’s Rubbish Assembly

Hopefully not literally, but in keeping with the theme of “looking after our world” we decided to base our assembly on – Rubbish – and how detrimental it is, not only to ourselves but also to animals and plant life alike.

Form 4 actively took part in the assembly which was lead by Mrs Walker.  The assembly looked at issues such as Urban Wild Life, Our Community, Recycling in general and what WE can do to make a positive change.

This is part of our Eco-friendly initiative which encourages the children to be aware of environmental issues which affect us not only in general but also on a daily basis.

Our News...

As part of celebrating Black History Month, Form 4 have been designing their own Black Lives Matter posters.

Here are Issie and Isaac showing some of the children’s work.
