Woodheys Primary School was invited to attend The Commonwealth Secretariat in March. Here are extracts from their presentation.

 

 

 

"In the past, Woodheys has been commended for a whole team approach consistently enriching pupils learning by uniting the issues of nature and sustainability with the aspects of spirituality, Peace and multicultural education.´ How well this links to the words below from this year’s Commonwealth 60th Year poster.

"The Commonwealth works to instill in young people the spirit of peace, social cohesion and harmony, multiculturalism, commitment for human rights, respect and understanding, freedom, equality and moral values.

In 2009, the Commonwealth celebrates 60 years of existence as a family of different peoples, cultures and religions living together.  Unity in diversity, and solidarity through shared values, are the ties that bind us together."
