Flying the flag!

13th March 2014

It's not every day that one is invited to the Mayor's Suite for a cuppa!

On Monday 10th March, Joseph Hipwell (Year 6), Mrs Hipwell, Miss Slatcher and Miss Bushnell attended the 'Raising of the Commonwealth Flag’ ceremony at the Town Hall.  This special invitation was extended to only 12 schools from the Walsall area.

So why us? A few weeks ago, a number of our pupils entered a Commonwealth competition as part of their PSHE lessons with Miss Slatcher. Children were asked to design a poster promoting the 2014 Commonwealth games in Glasgow. We were delighted to hear that Joe was picked as a winner and ,for his efforts, was presented with a keepsake by the Mayor himself.

Well done Joe!
