Primary 6 were lucky to secure a place at the Take One Action event at Eden Court Theatre on Monday November 27th.
We watched a number of films; from stories of how children in Third World Countries have to strive to raise the money to attend school, to animations showing the effects of humans on the world around them. In between the films there were discussions on the impact we can have, both in terms of sustainability and taking positive actions to help others. We were also given a presentation by Oxfam. It was a very entertaining and informative event and is helping us to expand our thinking and continue to strive towards becoming true Global Citizens.
Primary 5 were in the Christmas spirit yesterday after the arrival of a surprise visitor. Eddie has come from Santa’s Christmas Cheer Division (CCD) in the North Pole to spread some Christmas Cheer. The P5’s have been enlisted as Eddie’s helpers and will need to complete daily challenges to show kindness to others. Sometimes, they may even have secret challenges to complete on their own.
Eddie has been welcomed with open arms and was showered with gifts and cards and even got to hear a few stories too. We think Eddie will like his time in P5.
Watch this space to see some of the ways we are spreading joy this Christmas.
