The Nursery and Prep School learn about Maya Angelou

The Nursery and Prep School learn about Maya Angelou

Last week during assembly, the Prep School students and Mrs Scott talked about our focus for the month of September, and they reflected on how we had settled back into school and new routines. The focus this month has been based on a Maya Angelou quote, “be a rainbow in someone's cloud”.

The Nursery talked in assembly about Maya Angelou and the importance of being a rainbow in someone's cloud. Mrs Scott was immensely proud to hear about how all our students are helping each other and there were lots of examples shared from Nursery to Year 6. From sharing toys, helping new girls to find their way around the school, being excited when someone else has done well, to all the things they do to help at home and also the simple pleasures of reading or singing together.

We shared the results of the Year 5 and 6 Undivided surveys completed towards the end of the last academic year and our action plan for the next academic year. It is important that students' voices are heard and that everyone in our community feels respected, valued, safe and secure.  

One of the areas we are focusing on is our curriculum and ensuring that it represents us all as a whole. It is always great to hear firsthand experiences of different cultures and celebrations and Mrs Scott would invite you all to please share your celebrations with us in school. 

Our first whole Prep display is called 'Our Global Family'. We would like all the girls to draw around their hand and decorate it using the colours of the flag that represents their country. Write the word 'hello' in the language of the country. Please bring your handprints in by Friday 14th October.  

Next month's focus is 'Action not Words'. We are proud to celebrate Black History Month during the month of October, which celebrates the heritage and culture of black people and their contribution to British society and the world as a whole. 

We shared the following video in assembly:
