P4-7 Earth Day Assembly 22.4.16

On Friday 22nd April, we celebrated Earth Day by watching the Climate Coalition’s film (scripted by Michael Morpurgo and starring Jeremy Irons) and Greenpeace’s “Give the Earth a Hand” video.

We also commemorated the 400th Anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare (23rd April 1616) and asked pupils to play their part in making a difference.

A feeder ride will meet tomorrow at Sciennes at 11.00am to join the main Pedal on Parliament ride at 12.00pm on the Meadows, Saturday 23rd April, and pupils were encouraged to continue to walk, scoot and cycle to school, to play their part in tackling climate change.

P7 pupil, Toby Ward, showed how he had made a difference by donating his time volunteering at a local Food Bank as part of his Silver JASS award.

House Captains congratulated fellow pupils on recent achievements and reminded everyone about our annual Swimathon, taking place next week.

We informed pupils at both Assemblies this morning that the cones will be removed today, so our playground will be open fully on Monday 25th April.
