At the end of February, some of our pupils came to school in their Beaver, Cub, Brownie and Guide uniforms instead of their usual uniform. This was part of our celebration of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts World Thinking Day during our regular afternoon Collective Worship session.
This is a special day in the WAGGGS calendar as since 22 February 1926 which is the joint birthday of Lord Baden-Powell, founder of the scout and guide movement and his wife, Olave, who served as World Guide Chief. Since then it has been a day dedicated to thinking about each other and in particular, the world-wide guiding community celebrate which is now an international movement.
Jakob, Nathaniel, Daniel, Laila, Jade and Ruby all spoke with great pride and enthusiasm about their uniforms and what it means to them to wear it. They also explained to everyone the significance of Thinking Day and why it is celebrated all over the world.
Acting Head of School, Mrs Karen Canham said, "It was lovely occasion for everybody and I would like to thank those that wore their uniforms and spoke about what they represent, including those members of our staff who have leadership roles in these organisations."
