Boys Dance Too!

Use a tree...plant a tree! Following the installation of our new printers and photocopiers, we made an ecological promise. In an attempt to neutralise part of our carbon footprint, we began to measure just how many trees worth of paper we used, and planned to plant a tree in school grounds to match it. This week we planted 4 trees in school ; a Cherry, Plum, Apple and Pear tree on the front garden. Thank you to our gardeners , Toby Berry (10BB) and Levi Ali Jones (10ACD) who helped!

The Global Day of Parents is observed on the 1st of June every year. The Day was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in 2012 and honours parents throughout the world. The Global Day provides an opportunity to appreciate all parents in all parts of the world for their selfless commitment to children and their lifelong sacrifice towards nurturing this relationship. In its resolution, the General Assembly also noted that the family has the primary responsibility for the nurturing and protection of children and that children, for the full and harmonious development of their personality, should grow up in a family environment and in an atmosphere of happiness, love and understanding.
