Art Week - Climate Change

If you were walking along Kings Road, Herne Bay on Friday 4th October, or even in the local Memorial Park, you might have noticed Herne Bay Junior School children were taking a lively and meaningful walk!

As part of our Arts Week - Climate Change - children explored and discovered what is meant by climate change and then, at the close of the project, they assembled and walked in recognition of their views and thoughts on this topical subject. All the children were not only able to express themselves by walking and singing with their placards but their work from the week was also exhibited at Beach Creative, making a colourful and rich collection for all to see.

Afternoon Tea with Mrs Kingman

The School Council were recently invited to have Afternoon Tea with Mrs Kingman.  They were eager to use the time wisely and prepared by choosing some important points to raise. The School Council enjoyed some delicious cakes made by Mrs Gower and were all actively involved in discussing what they would like to see achieved by the new School Council this year.

Several points were raised, such as making improvements to outdoor environment as well as being eager to engage in and initiate a  community project. The School Council also discussed our upcoming School's Parliament week and spoke about options for voting, petitions and debates within our school.  The School Council are looking forward to our next meeting where we can start to put our ideas into action!
