Our Yellow Flag programme, which promotes inclusivity and celebrates the diversity in our school, is in full swing again this year. We are currently working through the steps towards being awarded our first Yellow Flag and all the children have been busy completing work in their classrooms.
Several classes are participating in the Someone Like Me art competition which is sponsored by the Department of Justice and Equality. This fantastic competition aims to promote disability awareness among primary school children and give them a greater understanding of what unites children of differing abilities. Someone Like Me allows children to learn about and discuss these topics and creatively express what they’ve learned through art.
First and Second class have been looking at what makes each child in the class an individual and have completed self-portraits highlighting their individuality. They have also completed an Intercultural Flower which shows the different nationalities represented in their class.
First Class have been learning sign language as part of ISL Awareness week and can now use basic signing with each other.
Here is a small sample of the amazing work going on in our school to celebrate the diversity in our community!
