Celebrating Commonwealth Day 2018

Today, we celebrated Commonwealth Day. We have been learning about countries in the Commonwealth and each class dressed in the national colours of one of countries. Class 3 watched and joined in with Haka dances from New Zealand and Class 5 tasted food from Pakistan. The whole school enjoyed a Jamaican lunch and the RRSA group designed their own Commonwealth flags.
Some students went to Blackburn Town Hall to meet the Mayor and participate in the special ceremony to commemorate this day and raise the Commonwealth Flag over Blackburn.
