Sciennes Think Global, Act Local Assembly 2.2.18 from Sciennes Primary School
On Friday 2nd February we were delighted to welcome a delegation of eight teachers and staff from Laugarnesskóli Primary School in Reykjavik. Laugarnesskóli is the first Icelandic school to gain a Silver Unicef Rights Respecting Schools Award and we welcomed the opportunity to share practice and ideas. After a tour of the school and classrooms, the Headteacher (Sigridur Heida Bragadottir) very kindly spoke at Assembly and gifted a beautiful book about Iceland for our Library. We are really looking forward to establishing a new International partnership between our schools.
As global citizens, pupils were encourage to participate in this year’s Climate Coalition #showthelove climate action campaign, by noticing and recording evidence of climate change over the next few weeks. Like Sciennes, Laugarnesskóli is working towards its fifth green ECO flag and it would be wonderful to link on Eco topics too.
We concluded Week Three of our City of Edinburgh ‘Be Resilient’ Health and Wellbeing topic ‘Have a Goal’ by sharing pupil examples of goals they have recently set as a family.
