It’s been a long wait for Year 5 and 6 but Tuesday 9th November was the day they had all been waiting for, the Mini Police results. Last week, our Mini Police candidates delivered speeches and shared the posters they had created before their peers voted for the two candidates they felt would make the best Mini Police. The candidates then waited patiently over the weekend to find out who the 10 newly elected Mini Police would be. At last they were joined by PCSO Posnett who had come to announce who had been ‘voted in’ by their peers.
Following the exciting news, PCSO Posnett (with the help of his new Mini Police) lead an assembly all about kindness. He discussed ways to be kind, such as ways of filling someone’s bucket with love, smiles, kind words, play and friendship. He also discussed how things can dip into someone’s bucket, such as sadness, loneliness, stress, punishment and isolation. The children discussed and shared ideas of random acts of kindness they could carry out, and things they could do to ‘fill’ someone’s ‘bucket’. The assembly was a fantastic opportunity to remind the children of our Christian Values of Compassion and Friendship. We can’t wait to see what other Mini Police projects they will be taking part in this year.
