Säkra varje unge - a non-profit organisation working against internet grooming and sexual abuse of children held a lecture for our grade 5 students and grades 4-6 parents last week. They talked about how various aps are used on the internet today by our youth and how unknown adults can potentially quite easliy get in contact with our children. An open dialogue between parents and children was promoted so that children always feel supported if something inappropriate happens to them on the web. A much appreciated presentation by both students and adults.
Last Wednesday the whole school participated in Skoljoggen! The students walked down to through Ultuna and walked or ran a 5 km loop along the river. House points were handed out for wearing House colours and of course also to the fastest runners. A great afternoon! All funds collected went to Clowner utan Gränser, which is Skoljoggens sponsored charity this year.
On Wednesday 4/9 Christian Benedict held a very appreciated lecture on the importance of sleep, during our parents evening for Middle School. It tied in very well with Anders Hansen's “sommarprat” on the effects of exercise and sleep on our health. One point they both make: please make sure your mobiles are not next to your bedside when sleeping, but in another room, turned off!
As tradition dictates we have had the Clash of Houses competitions the past 2 weeks with years 4&5 and 8&9 week 34 and 6&7 last week. This has been a fun filled afternoon with brain teasers and also different game. Right now Celcius House is in the lead, but students will be able to collect points throughout the year. We will see who wins in June!
