Every Friday afternoon we hold our achievement assembly where we celebrate all of our achievements made during the week. Children (and sometimes staff) receive merit certificates for their hard work. These efforts are recognised for specific pieces of work or for demonstrating our core christian values in some way. In addition to this, someone may receive a special mention for choosing to use kind words or actions. The children always wait eagerly to see if their efforts have been rewarded and it is always lovely to see everyone clapping and praising others. As part of this assembly we also celebrate achievements made outside of school. This is my favourite part because everyone is so proud to share their experiences. These vary from swimming, gym club, martial arts, hockey, football, tennis to scouting, musical achievements and drama productions. We learn so much about our children as they share these moments. It reminds us how important it is to develop the whole child. They are all so well rounded and happy children. It's lovely to see.
