Week beginning 13th November 2017
This week is Tolerance Week at Hartlip School. Within it, we acknowledge National Anti Bullying Week and conclude supporting BBC Children in Need. Our Worship will focus on: everybody different, everybody equal as well as the quote: do not judge me until you have walked a mile in my shoes.
In Worship, Mrs Barrett has talked to us about Religious Tolerance and Mrs Jerome about Tolerance in our school community. We have much to think about.
On Friday, we will share and reflect on our learning in Church Worship as well as engaging in activities throughout the day to support BBC Children in Need. We are coming to school dressed very differently to acknowledge: everybody different, everybody equal.
Week beginning: 6th November 2017
This week we focus on our School Christian Value of Thankfulness and Peace. We are thankful to all those who have given their lives so that we can live in peace today. We are thankful to all of those today who go about their daily jobs to keep us safe. We think about the emergency and armed services and their families who send them off each day with their love and support to carry out their work. We will conclude our week with a special Remembrance Church Worship and lay a wreath at the war memorial. Our families and friends have been busy knitting and crocheting poppies to place on the hedges around the war memorial. We shall remember above all that Peace begins with each and every one of us in our homes and in our school, wider community and world. Together we make a peaceful tomorrow.
Week beginning: 30th October 2017
This week, we remember with thankfulness our Founder Mary Gibbon. In 1678 our school was founded by this lady who, in her will, left a house, garden, orchard and six acres of land in Hartlip, to Trustees, with the intent that they should, out of the rents and profits, put to school such poor children of the said parish, to be taught to read English.
Our Worship focus on our School, Christian Value of Thankfulness, reflecting on how lucky we are to have each other and our school. We celebrate in style with a formal Founders Day Church Worship, followed by an evening finale: Founders Day Fireworks and Fun.
