Bowes Hutchinson’s goes from strength to strength with Commonwealth Project.
On 25th April, 20 children from Years 2, 3 and 4 went to Durham to take part in the Commonwealth Service. They first went to the County Hall to do a selection of workshop activities representing Nigeria. Once refreshed with drinks and biscuits the children took part in an African drumming workshop which was very loud and energetic!
After lunch the children walked to Millennium Place where they were organised ready for the procession to the Cathedral.
The service commenced with Indian dancing followed by songs that the children had learnt, prayers, a poem and a blessing. The event closed with a large procession of Flags of the Commonwealth.
All of the children enjoyed the opportunity to learn about the Commonwealth and meet people from around the world.
Bowes Hutchinson’s are also pleased to announce that they have been chosen to take part in Canterbury’s Christ Church University Research Project into best practise for faith and spirituality in schools. This will commence later in the Summer Term and finish next year.
