Good afternoon folks,
This week is Friendship week in HETNS! Friendship is such an important thing for us all….so we are going to be learning lots about friendship throughout the week. Some of the activities include Secret Friend, Random Acts of Kindness Jar, lessons on how to be a good friend, friendship songs, buddy day (where the older children will buddy up with younger children to be kind to them and help them with their learning), friendship art and our friendship assembly on Friday.
A small part of Friendship Week is for us here in HETNS to be good friends to people around the world who are less fortunate than us. To do this, we will be selling friendship bracelets. They costy €2 each and ALL of the money goes towards Amnesty International, who do such important charity work around the world….including in some of the countries where families from this school come from! So it’s a very nice charity to support for us in HETNS. You can read more about Amnesty here.
Parents can also get into the spirit of things by trying to be EXTRA nice to your partners, friends and loved ones!
As always, thanks for your support.
