Year 6 Welcome Assembly

Year 6 once again had the honour of kicking off the new academic year with a welcome assembly for the primary school.Since we are an international school with around 42 different nationalities, we wanted to celebrate the differences between our nations and cultures, in the form of dance. We performed a poem by Benjamin Zephaniah, then gave an example of dances such as the Hula, the Samba, the Bhangra, Flamenco, Ballet and Disco. The children thoroughly enjoyed learning these dances and their costumes looked fantastic. Well done, Year 6!

Year 6 Welcome Assembly

Year Six began the year with their Welcome Assembly. The children began by forming the word WELCOME out of body shapes which looked effective as they were dressed all in white .They then said hello and welcome in many different languages and we learnt that there are as many as forty two different nationalities in Aloha College. A PowerPoint presentation followed which told the audience about the history of the Union Jack flag of Great Britain and also the story behind the Spanish flag. The presentation continued with several very interesting facts about various countries that the children had researched themselves, backed up by photographs. The assembly finished with a song, performed by all the students, which gave the cautionary message that we should all take care of our precious planet. As a treat for all the children in the Junior School and the teachers, the pupils of Year Six had all brought in some home made food from their countries which they later distributed to everyone.
