Unicef Day for Change

The children, staff, parents and carers of Charles Dickens Primary School came together last Friday to celebrate Unicef Day for Change and to raise money for children in danger throughout the world. Children donated money to wear blue clothing or their favourite sports kit to school. They took part in football and other sporting activities throughout the day, along with activities to raise awareness of Unicef’s commitment to protecting children and promoting their rights. After school, parents and carers helped children to sell cakes, books and toys to raise even more money for the charity. Finally a huge crowd of children, teachers, parents and carers descended on Mint Street park to watch the annual parents vs teachers football match. Despite a valiant effort by the parents team, for the first time in five years, the teachers actually won!  A massive thank you to everyone who went out of their way to make the day such a success, and a huge thank you to Mr Vanson for organising the day so efficiently.

Eid Mubarak!

Eid Mubarak to all of the Charles Dickens school community! Parents, carers, children and teachers came together today to celebrate Eid and to raise money for the school by selling delicious homemade snacks and cakes. The children also had the opportunity to have henna tattoos and to play together in the sun. It was a joyous occasion enjoyed by everyone who attended. A massive thank you to the parents and carers who organised the event. Everyone at the school is very grateful.

Stars of the Week, Charles Dickens Poetry, and Southwark Gymnastics!

Congratulations to our wonderful stars of the week! These are the children who impressed their teachers with their scientific knowledge, their Maths mastery, their fabulous writing, and their willingness to have a go. Also, a huge well done to the child who had their poem published in the ‘School Britannia’ poetry anthology. The whole school is very proud of you. Congratulations to the Year 3 and 4 gymnastics teams who finished first and fourth in the Southwark Gymnastics competition. As a result they will be competing in the London Youth Games in July!
