We have always had a strong relationship with our pre-prep school and early in December, four of our Belmont Year 7 girls went over to perform a special Winter Festivals presentation. The girls demonstrated how winter is a special time for many world religions and creatively used persona dolls to inform the children about Diwali, Ramadan, Hanukkah and Christmas. For our younger Grimsdell children, this method was particularly successful as it used a light and friendly approach which they all thoroughly enjoyed – candles were lit, games were played and songs were exchanged.
Our girls and the Grimsdell children had a wonderful morning together, teaching, learning and strengthening the relationship between the schools. A similar event is being planned for next term!
