Dear Year 5 Parents,
I wanted to let you know how incredibly proud of our Year 5 children we were at the Workers' Memorial yesterday. The theme for the national day this year was 'Make safe and healthy work a fundamental right' , the children talked about the UN CONVENTION ON THE RIGHTS OF THE CHILD, read a Dr Seuss humorous poem about the workplace and sang the well loved hymn 'When I needed a Neighbour'. Following the service, we walked across the road to the Workers' Memorial stone in Central Park, following a bagpiper, watched whilst representatives laid wreaths at the stone and held a minutes silence. It was very moving.
Our children's behaviour was impeccable, they performed their pieces brilliantly, and they were incredibly respectful during the service. It was a real honour to accompany them and they are a credit to you as parents.
Last night I received an email from Councillor Tony Gosling, who organises the service, please see this below.
Dear Anna and Bruce
A massive thank you to the young people of year 5 Berkeley Primary school who have once again been magnificent at the Workers Memorial Day event.
From the performance to their conduct and behaviour each and every young person was a credit to the school and their parents.
Many of the comments I receive afterwards are praise for the school saying they are the highlight and make the event.
Well done to everyone at Berkeley Primary School who really do steal the show year after year.
It is an honour and privilege to be able to work with you all.
