Variety is the spice of life, and school life is terrifically busy! This week we marked Anti-Bullying Week; so important as we reflect on worldly events that continue to have such a devasting impact on Ukraine and beyond. As I stood at the Remembrance Service on Sunday with Axelle and Josh, listening to the words of Chaplain, Gareth Jones 129 (Tunbridge Wells) Squadron Air Training Corps, the prayers mirrored our thoughts for the less fortunate across the world and locally. My hope is that we continue to support St Matt’s Community Larder with our collections.
The Anti-Bullying theme is ‘Reach Out’, with acts of kindness, to our peers, staff and members of our community. Monday’s assembly was presented by our own Anti-Bullying Committee, who created a film to remind us that things don’t always go our own way, and sometimes we need to seek out help, and in return, support others.
At our Individual Recital Concert we heard many pupils play a rich and varied repertoire, there was such talent and all those wonderful smiles of the children so clearly enjoying the experience, as did the audience! Well done to all of our pupils and thanks to our visiting music teachers and Mrs Harrod.
Friday’s assembly, ‘Children in Need’, led by Mr Agnew and the School Council was a great success. The School Council shared the message that children who are less fortunate that us need our support.
