School Events 2016-17
As part of the Cultural week, Reception and KS1 students were treated to a performance of traditional tales from different cultures. Our pupils helped Valentine (an actor from the Fresh Water Company) to perform a number of different stories and they had a great time.
Cultural dress-up day
Our students dressed up in traditional outfits to celebrate the diversity and unity within our school. This was the culmination of Cultural Week where we learnt and celebrated different cultures from home and abroad. Students brought foods which represent their cultural heritage and shared it their peers. We also learnt about the main five British values which are: democracy, rule of law, mutual respect, individual liberty and tolerance and respect.
Pupils from years 5 and 6 took part in a range of activities to mark the end of Cultural Week and to celebrate all they have learned in French this year. The students played Boule, tried refreshments in French style café, drew the Eifel Tower and took part in a French theatre workshop in which they acted out a traditional tale in French.
40th Anniversary Celebration
The past met the present in this fantastic celebration which brought the community together. Miss Ridley and Miss Blackwood choreographed and lead the performing arts to their best performance yet. The event was celebrated by governors, parents, alumni, and current and former staff members from the Scott Wilkie family, including Scott Wilkie’s first Headteacher, Mrs. Pierce.
Newham Debating League
Our debaters entered the Newham Debate League. They took part in three rounds throughout the year. There were two debates per round and our team won all six debates. The children became winners of the League which was a first Scott Wilkie and a great achievement for our school.
London Music Fund Scholarship
Tyrone (5A) has been awarded the London Music Fund Scholarship for his outstanding skills in playing the cello. He will receive a full scholarship over the next four years.
Tyrone is one of the only children in Newham to have received such an honour. This award not only reflects his ability but his incredible work ethic and dedication to music.
Well done, Tyrone.
Scott Wilkie’s first Carnival
The whole school took part in a carnival full of colour, entertainment and self-expression. The different year groups had a great time displaying their banners and carnival outfits whilst the dancers swayed to the sound of the steel pans which was being played by the school band.
