The Key Stage 2 children welcomed a guest speaker to come in
and talk to them all about the dangers of knives. This
moving assembly informed the children of both the legal and
the moral responsibilities that they have on keeping
themselves and others safe. The children were reassured with
real statistics that are not always portrayed in the media.
At St. Helen's we have been promoting the importance on
online safety both at school and at home for all children.
Many parents have attended our workshops; to learn about how
they can best protect their children while they use the
internet at home. We have had guest speakers attend our
workshop, to promote additional safety measures and to
demonstrate a variety of useful apps and websites.
Year 5 were lucky to take part in a workshop which taught
the children about the importance of questioning what you
read, being able to recognise sensitive or inappropriate
material and what actions to take if they do come across
something online which they think is dangerous.
This week we have our Mission Week. The theme this year is;
One body, many parts based on the scripture Reading 1
Corinthians 12:12-27 which is linked to our key issue on
uniqueness, celebrating everyone's gifts and talents. We
started the week with a whole school assembly in the Convent
Chapel. Fr Andrew remind us of the story of Zacchaeus.
