Over the past week we have been commemorating Remembrance Day. During SMSC session in tutor period students have been watching videos, discussing past wars and holding a minutes silence to remember those who fought and continue to fight for our freedom.
One of the main activities for pupils was to make their own poppy with their own special message; these poppies were then collected and made into a house wreath. On Thursday lunch time myself the other house leaders and several pupils went down to St Margret’s Church to visit the cenotaph. We were accompanied by Father Barley who held a small service for us to pay our respects and lay the wreaths.
I would like to say a big thank you to all pupils and staff for their kind messages and donations to the Royal British Legion and a special thank you to Father Barley for holding such a nice service.

SPANISH CAFÉ AT SWINTON COMMUNITY SCHOOL. Year 5 students from Queen, St. Thomas, Brookfield, Kilnhurst and Fitzwilliam were involved in our Spanish Café event today. The activities involved preparing delicious tapas, ¡Qué delicioso!, and learning enough Spanish to be able to serve their parents and family members who attended the café. We would like to say a huge thank you to all the primary staff, parents/carers and students for making this a wonderful start to our YEAR 5 TRANSITION PROGRAMME. 162 students and 150 family members attended the event. Thank you also to Swinton Community School Staff, Sixth Form and Year 8 student ambassadors for all the hard work and preparation that made the day such a success. News of future events will be announced shortly. We hope you enjoy the photos. GRACIAS!
