Friends of Mombasa – Sponsored dance
How to Behave At School
School council reviewed the 'How to Behave at School' poster that features in every classroom. They made alterations from the previous years, with a focus they felt was particularly important - mental health and the lasting effective words can have on someone.
This November, school council are hosting their own assembly with an anti-bullying theme. School council wanted the assembly to end with a focus on positivity and how if one person is filled with kindness and love and then they do something for another person and then that person is filled with kindness and love, and they then do something kind and this just goes on and on. The next thing you know, everyone is kind, filled with love and feeling awesome! They will also be producing a leaflet that will be sent home to accompany the assembly.
