Global Celebration Day!

Our school celebrated being global citizens as we enjoyed a day full of activities and fundraising. The children were challenged to think on a truly global scale and had some great discussions! We learnt lots more about our partner school, Empowering Children, in Freetown. We managed to raise £265 on the day and this will contribute greatly as Empowering Children purchase furniture for their classrooms! A huge thank you to all who contributed!

Cecil Jones, a fantastic musician born and raised in Sierra Leone, visited us. He told great stories of his homeland and also taught the children traditional West African songs. They even managed to sing along in the native Krio language!

It was very impressive how this class asked lots of questions based on their topic of transport. Well done on thinking globally in your classroom! Mr Hermann's class included questions based on personal links with other West African countries. Great to see and appreciate other cultures in our school!

There was a great interest here about the food that is eaten in Sierra Leone. I think a lot of the children must have been hungry right before lunch! Cecil talked about his love for the traditional West African food of the Cassava plant.

Inspiration was the theme here as the children quizzed Cecil about his inspirations to get in to music. It shows how, no matter where in the world you are from, you can always achieve your dream!

Here the focus was on Sierra Leone's recovery from recent Ebola and flooding disasters. It showed a great awareness of global issues and was approached in a very respectful manner. Impressive.

This was a great way to finish Cecil's tour of the school as the children asked really engaging questions ranging from cars (Freetown has impressive traffic jams!), to politics and religion. Well done for really thinking with your global hats on!
