Three Netherton primary schools have been working together to celebrate outstanding attendance – St Benedicts Catholic Primary School, The Grange and Our Lady of Walsingham Catholic Primary School.
The three schools have been working together with teachers meeting together to discuss education and they ended the last academic year with a 100% attendees celebration event.
Clare Johanson, event organiser and parent support advisor from this year’s hosts, Our Lady of Walsingham, said: “This event, we hope, will be an annual event, hosted in turn in each of our schools.
“We had an incredible 49 pupils with 100% attendance from across the three schools.”
Clare had organised for a whole range of events – football skills from local girls’ football coaches, The Fillies; an inflatable obstacle course and a dance class from Jenetic. The most important part was the making of dream catchers where pupils had the opportunity to discuss why they think it is important to be in school.
Gloria, the Our Lady’s cook, provided a lovely, huge picnic for everyone including ice cream!
Parents were invited to celebrate and teachers thanked them too for raising the profile of education in their homes.
Clare said: “Congratulations to all of our pupils, and thank you for a fantastic day! It was so lovely to see pupils from across the three schools having fun and encouraging each other!”.
