Many of our HUB articles look back on events in the past, but this week we really want to draw your attention to the exciting week ahead across the whole school. Both EYFS and the Primary school will be joining together to celebrate International Week. Internationalism and being internationally-minded is about understanding what makes other people individual. Here in the Primary school, we live this through our school vision:
“I have independence, flexibility and am open-minded. I can problem solve and communicate effectively and maintain my own personal and cultural identity, whilst still respecting yours. My acceptance and empathy towards all others allows me to learn and integrate in a world-wide community of people. I am successful because I am internationally-minded.”
For our children, we condense this to our short Mission statement:
“I am me and you are you. Success in the world when we are two.”
Wherever we travel to in the world, whatever experiences we have, we will always take with us our own perspectives and cultural differences which, together with others, are a true celebration of how to be global citizens.
Our school vision of being internationally-minded permeates through all areas of our school life: in PHSE lessons, for example, where Years 5 and 6 learn about gender stereotypes in different cultures; in IPC, where children study traditional agricultural methods and family life in Vietnam and into our literacy lessons, where children access a wide range of stories from different cultures. International Week is just one of the many opportunities we provide for your children to experience different cultures and to compare them with their own. Please do take some time to check Dojo regularly to see what your children are learning and to share these experiences with them.
Next week, I will also be looking forward to my first meeting with our Primary School Parent Ambassadors. This is now a well-established group of supportive parents who used to meet regularly with Mr West to share parent perceptions and to raise questions on behalf of the whole parent community. Next week, we will begin our discussions with a review of communication through Class Dojo and our new Home Learning projects. If you are interested in joining this group, or have any feedback that you would like to share, please do contact either Ms Them or Ms Haejin.
I wish you all a restful weekend.
