We are hosting our first school concert in our new school on Friday 19th December, the day of the school holidays. This year the concert aims to show you the parents, some of the work we do in the ethical education curriculum. As you probably know every Friday there is a school assembly, where one class does a presentation, a play, a poem or a song that highlights one aspect of our Learn Together curriculum. Since September, there have been presentations on Eid Al Adha, on Diwali and on Christmas, representing the Belief Systems strand of the curriculum. There has also been presentations on Rights and Responsibilities from the Equality and Justice strand. A lot of work has been put into the importance of family and friendship and the quality of Respect which falls into the Moral and Spiritual strand. Our Green school committee have made presentations at our assemblies relating to the Ethics and the Environment strand.
Each of the classes will present a short 5 minute presentation which may be a song, a short play or a piece of music. We envisage that the concert will begin at 10:30 and should finish shortly after 12pm. The children will be released from school at 12:20, a half day before the school holidays.
School resumes on Monday 5th January 2015.
