We like to celebrate birthdays in school. We feel it is important for everyone to have a special day.
We celebrate birthdays in school in the following ways:
Birthday celebrations are shared in assembly
Children wear their own clothes on their birthday. If your child's birthday falls on the weekend, or during the holidays, then children can wear their own clothes on the next school day
If families would like to share something with the class, we would love it if children brought in a book to gift to the class. This is, of course, completely optional and only a suggestion.
Some members of our community do not celebrate birthdays and we respect this. If your child does not celebrate their birthday and does not participate in birthday celebrations, please inform their class teacher, who will mange their participation and customs with respect and sensitivity.
