Book Day 2017

Book Day 2017

Today children and staff at Cathedral School dressed up as their favourite book characters. As ever, the effort and ingenuity that went into the costumes was fantastic.

 

One of the best things about World Book Day was discovering new authors and remembering forgotten favourites. A very exciting part of the day was the ‘Choose a story session’. Children were able to choose a story from a selection before finding out which teacher would read it to them.

Which story did you choose to listen to and why?

Bad Hair Day at Cathedral School

Bad Hair Day at Cathedral School

The school grounds this morning became a flurry of colour, glitter, ribbons and hairspray. It could only mean one thing – Bad Hair Day had arrived at Cathedral School!

Fundraising for Great Ormond Street Hospital, the event was organised by one of our wonderful Year 6 students who has been looked after at GOSH. With many of Cathedral School students past and present being cared for at one stage or another by GOSH, it’s important as a community that we support the wonderful work that they do.

We had both local and hospital press present during our assembly, so you may see some familiar faces in the Southwark papers.

Thank you to everyone supported the day, parents, students and staff and for all your generous donations.

Here are some of the wonderful hair creations we saw today!

Today, children in Year 1 to 6 were lucky enough to step into the world of Virtual Reality. Darren from Google Expeditions visited Cathedral School, showing children how to use the Google Cardboard. This allowed them to step into places such as Venice and Rio De Janiero, without leaving the school hall. Year 1 and 2 were able to use tablets to explore a 360 degree view of under the sea. Here are some photos of the children in a virtual world!

Kingdom of God

Father Michael at the end of the service praised the thoughtfulness of the reflections.
