Monday 9 March was Commonwealth Day, with events taking place across the world to promote understanding on global issues, and international co-operation. Our Year 5 and 6 School Councillors joined children from across the town at the Town Hall for a special flag raising ceremony. The children met the Mayor of Tunbridge Wells, Councillor James Scholes, and also the Mayoress and a Deputy Lieutenant. They took part in an affirmation to the Commonwealth and also heard a special message from the Queen. They then spent some time asking the Mayor questions and learning about the Mayoral chain, badge, robes and Mace. It was a very special occasion and the children were a real credit to the school.
