Our school has drawn together to celebrate all that is good within the Dulwich community during these unprecedented times by sharing stories via our social media feeds. #DulwichSpirit is all about being kind and useful, and children are encouraged to highlight any positive work that is being undertaken from home. We are celebrating successes such as an act of kindness, sharing good wishes with friends (our Easter cards,crafts and baking were particularly popular) or anything to make us smile.
The Dulwich Rainbow has been created by a huge collective effort, where everyone including children, parents and staff were asked to share a self-portrait. We are delighted with the result which gives a real flavour of all that has been achieved in this extraordinary times.
Everyday throughout the holidays we featured our Teachers’ Choice of Classical music as a great way to start the day, and the children are encouraged to listen in via our iNet, and via Facebook and Twitter.
Children have been responding to the #Chickchallenge – singing the song they have been learning at school ‘Spring Chicken’, in a wide variety of ways from rap to performing up a tree. Year 3 sang a version during their morning assembly in the last week of term.
Good news stories include the donation of our DT goggles to the local NHS for PPE, some fabulous rainbows drawn in support of our NHS, fundraising for the NHS by shaving off hair, and the wonderful Holiday Camp which ran for the children of keyworkers throughout the holidays.
Our Year 8 Spanish students missed out on their trip to Madrid this Easter holidays, and as a tribute to their teacher Miss Alonso they put together a virtual visit to her home city.
And if you need cheering up, then check out the hashtag #petsofdulwich on Instagram for a bombardment of dogs, cats and many weird and wonderful animals that are owned by our brilliant Dulwich families.
