On Wednesday 21st March, we held a special whole school assembly on Earth Hour. Mrs Longmore led the assembly and asked students to think about; what makes Planet Earth special? What are the biggest threats to Planet Earth and what can we do to help to protect the planet?
Whilst there, all had the opportunity to take time out from the pressures of school work; pray; reflect on what was important to them in life; strengthen friendships and support each other in the various challenges set for them.
