International Day

On Thursday March 26th, JSD will be celebrating international Day. This is an opportunity for your child to come into school wearing an international costume. We will spend the day celebrating different cultures and learning about different countries around the world.

The children will have a team of Year 6 children to lead them in activities. The Amethysts will be learning about the United Kingdom and the Emeralds will be learning about New Zealand.

Please send your child with their packed lunch on this day. If you wish to send in an international treat for the children to share, then please do.
