Pupils had an incredible International Women's Day where they participated in a range of activities inspired by inspirational women across the world.
The day started with an informative assembly including a fun dance along. Pupils then visited our new on-site cafe 'Nourish to Flourish', run by our inspirational Bouchra, to buy a treat from the tuck shop or participate in a multi-sensory experience. Many pupils were patiently waiting for their turn to visit the 'Mary Berry's cheesecake' workshop with the inspirational Emily, where they developed their communication skills choosing their toppings. Classes practiced their gymnastic skills in the gym, with the inspirational Sally, for the 'Simone Biles gymnastics workshop.' Classes also enjoyed an Attention Autism Bucket inspired by the famous polka dot artist Yayoi Kusama. Lastly, we were blown away by pupils' responses to the 'Bindi Irwin animal meet and greet' where pupils looked at, stroked and held many animals including bearded dragons, bunnies, snails, lizards and Davina the snake! The pupils were so calm, intrigued and gentle with the animals. It was a truly memorable experience for pupils.
Happy International Women's Day 2023!
