Here are just a few of the many pupils (and staff!) at MOL who are involved in the Scout, Girlguiding and Boys Brigade movements who shared some of their thoughts with us at assembly on Friday last week, including highlights and the many, many ways that they think of others as part of their time in these groups…
On Friday this week (February 22nd), we have Thinking Of Others Day at MOL. This is a chance for us all to think of others and find ways at school to put others before ourselves. On Friday, all pupils who are members of the Scout, Girlguiding or Boys Brigade movements are invited to wear their uniform to school. Everyone else is welcome to come to school brightly dressed wearing any colour of the rainbow. This is in celebration of the Girlguiding World Thinking Day and the Scouts’ Founder’s Day which is celebrated on 22nd February, the birthday of the Scouts’ founder, Lord Baden Powell.
During the day on Friday, pupils will take part in a range of activities linked to the theme of ‘thinking of others’ and there will be a special assembly in the afternoon when we reveal the giant rainbow, created by the completed thought bubbles which the children are filling in at home. Please remember that these bubbles need to come back to school on Friday for the creation of our thinking day rainbow. For nursery pupils, there will be learning linked to thinking of others which ties in with this term’s focus on people who help us.
We are planning to create a quiet area in the school grounds with a ‘thinking bench’ and would any donations to the school on Friday towards this project would be gratefully received. On Friday, all children will be given a piece of rainbow cake in celebration of the day.
Please open the link below for the information about Thinking of Others Day which went home on Friday of last week. Meantime, we look forward to seeing everyone back in school again tomorrow hopefully well refreshed after the long weekend, and all dressed for our Thinking of Others Day on Friday. Thank you.
