Children from Years 5 and 6 were lucky to take part in a workshop with award winning primary school leader, Shaun Dellenty, this morning continuing our work on celebrating difference and respect for all. Shaun has been working with the Department of Education, Sport and Culture this week across a range of primary and secondary schools on the island inspiring staff and young people. Following the talk this morning we joined Year 6 pupils in their Philosophy for Children session where the pupils shared some inspiring comments and explored their own responses and reactions to similarities and differences. Shaun was highly complimentary about the thoughtful, respectful and compassionate discussions and responses from our pupils. Well done Year 5 and 6 we will continue to build on this work throughout the year in line with our school’s aim ‘Everyone Matters’ and in realising our vision of “A caring community where learners rise to the challenge”.
In relation to our Unsinkable topic last term, the Alpacas visited Isle of Man Steam Packet. Children went aboard the Manannin to learn about the engine room, the bridge, how the ship operates, what happens in an emergency and much more.
A huge congratulations to the swimmers who competed at the Dolphin Trophy Swimming Gala today. We took part in the medium schools group where we came 5th out of the 9 schools in the group. Well done to all of our swimmers for their efforts and performance today!
The team displayed excellent behaviour and spirited efforts representing the school and it was great to see so many parents there to support our team. The children are a credit to Victoria and we are very proud. Well done!!
A big thank you to Mrs Marshal, Miss Quine and Mrs Katz for working with our swimmers and a special thank you to Mrs Katz for providing T-Shirts and Swimming hats for our team.
