On Friday 22nd March we hosted a visit from 20 Nepalese children, their teachers, and two members of the Harrogate Rotary Club. The children are visiting the UK as part of a project funded by the Rotary Club which will include a performance of the Monkey Boy concert at the Royal Hall in Harrogate, which our school choir will participate in.
The children visited classrooms and took part in singing, clay modelling, rocket making and Chromebook work. They then enjoyed playtime with the Green Hammerton children. At 11am we had Collective Worship where Sumit the Nepalese Music Teacher taught us all a Namaste song. Two Year 6 children then read a prayer and Rev’d Sarah gave a blessing. We were also pleased to welcome Mr Atkinson who joined us for the worship.
The Nepalese visitors were each presented with a pencil case designed by the Class 4 children and the Nepalese Schools gave Green Hammerton two beautiful plaques. The visitors then enjoyed lunch before heading off to their next school visit.
We will all remember his morning for a very long time as the Nepalese children and their teachers were so smart, polite and grateful. Our children and staff thoroughly enjoyed spending time with them and were amazed by their interest, small appetites and very quick maths skills!
Thank you again to FOGHS who paid for the pencil cases and lunches.
