  • Mrs Kirby's Weekly Words Week 10

    Published 08/07/22, by Anneliese Brackin

    Our family of learners are all different, and it allows our school to be the vibrant inclusive environment that it is. Our differences, our unique skills and talents are to be celebrated and encouraged so that self-esteem blossoms and with it grows our understanding, our tolerance, acceptance and from it a true community develops. We can then polish our strengths and encourage humility, we will work hard at our weaknesses and can create the opportunity for us all to have or make an impact with our actions, kindness and decision-making.

Achievements and effort were enthusiastically celebrated alongside plenty of good competitiveness and fun. The boys event was won by Windsor (blue).
