Mr and Mrs Willis from Water Aid gave a fascinating and inspiring talk to the whole school in Assembly. They encouraged the children to appreciate how we all take water for granted and to understand how vast numbers of people in other countries desperately need clean water to drink, cook with and wash in. After Assembly they ran an interactive workshop for Years 1 to 4. The children had lots of fun playing games and learning about why clean water is so important.
The Fun Run and World Water Day
Thursday, 22nd March
Plans are underway for the annual Toddle Waddle and Fun Run. It will take place on Thursday 22nd March and
sponsor forms will be sent out just before half term. World Water Day happens on the same day, so OBH will be going ‘blue for water’. All the children will be asked to donate £1 to wear a blue outfit, if they want to join in. We are also planning to challenge teams of children to walk the average distance an African child has walk to get water every day. A distance of 6km carrying 10lbs of water. This will take place in the week leading up to the Fun Run.
