On Friday 13th November, Mr Forrest Howie led a powerful and thought provoking P4-7 Assembly to help the children think about how they could take simple acts to bring about change. He explored inspirational examples, telling stories about Malala Yousafzai and Samantha Smith as well as George Clooney’s recent visit to Rose Street’s Social Bite Social Enterprise cafe. He also gave us historical examples of Martin Luther King’s campaign for civil rights and Emmeline Pankhurst’s campaign for Votes for Women and made us think how we can encourage and support change makers, as well as be change makers ourselves by taking simple acts, such as writing letters, like Samantha Smith did in the 1980s.
Food for thought, and Mr Howie’s Assemblies continue to take us all forward in recognising and realising rights. House Assemblies on 20th November will feature Unicef’s OutRight campaign and continue our focus on the Global Goals.
Our P7 House Captains did a great job of promoting this year’s Winter Fair which will take place on Saturday 28th November 12pm-3pm.
