PUPILS CELEBRATE SOCIAL ACTION WORK IN EXCITING ‘GRADUATION DAY’ AT THE UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD
This week, a group of our pupils in Years 5 and 6 joined together with children from primary schools across United Learning to celebrate their success in this year’s Student Leadership Programme.
On Wednesday, pupils who took part in the social action initiative enjoyed a special ‘Graduation Day’, held at St Anne’s College, University of Oxford. The day was an excellent opportunity for pupils to commemorate all their hard work and determination over the last term and the positive impact their project has had upon our school and wider community.
As part of the event, pupils first had an introduction to the University of Oxford and heard about university life. The children then took part in a sample Classics lecture where they explored aspects of the ancient world such as heroes, myths and philosophy, and discussed how different animals were viewed by ancient civilisations. They also got the opportunity to listen to an interesting talk from the university’s Raising and Giving (RAG) Committee, where they learnt more about how they can make a positive difference to the people and places around them.
