St. Peter's National School
We have had the most wonderful week in school this week. All the children have been super!
Last week in Assembly, 5th and 6th class read poems to us about bullying. The poems spoke about how bullying can make us feel. We talked about what it means to be a good friend and how to be a good friend to everyone. We reminded ourselves that it is always a good decision to ‘choose to be kind’. In St. Peter’s NS playground it is wonderful to see the power ‘choosing to be kind’ has on everyone, with lots of smiles and happy faces everywhere.
In this week’s Assembly 1st and 2nd class continued to talk about friendship. They sang us a wonderful song ‘You’ve got a friend in me’, from one of my favourite films ‘Toy Story!’ They were absolutely fantastic and did a super job!
Rev. Eugene was also in Assembly this morning and he spoke to us all about peace, as today is International Peace Day. He explained that peace can mean ‘quiet’ or ‘calm’ or even a ‘nice cuppa tea!’ The UN founded International Peace Day in 1981, to help foster peace between peoples and nations. Eugene reminded us that just like the Tesco slogan ‘every little helps’ we all matter and count towards making the world a happy and peaceful place.
Assembly was also very exciting this week as we heard all about the silver medallists in the World Equestrian Games, in North Carolina. A Mum in our school was a member of the team! A big ‘Congratulations’ to everyone involved! This is fantastic news! We heard all about ‘Rocket’ the horse who is described to be ‘Rocket by name, Rocket by nature!’
Wishing you all a very happy and peaceful weekend.
