New Value of the Month kickstarts the academic year.
Ms Dennison welcomed hundreds of students to our first whole-school assembly of the year.
Students from Year 1 to Year 6 attend assemblies every Friday morning, to connect together, to celebrate achievements and to announce the winning House of the week. This format has not changed during this period of online learning, to ensure that students still enjoy all the benefits of gathering together.
As with every first assembly of the year, all new teachers and children are celebrated and welcomed into the community. Ms Dennison also introduces the new Value of the Month, a foundational character trait for us all to bear in mind as a new month begins.
The first Value of the Month in 2021-22 is Connectivity. To lay the foundation for this, Ms Dennison led a live storytime for students, featuring the tale of The Soul Bird by Michal Smunit. The story encourages children and adults alike to listen to their emotions and connect with yourself, which in turn helps us connect with others.
