WHITE ROCK ASSEMBLIES
At White Rock we use assemblies as a way to educate, show case and celebrate. Please look below to see some of the great assemblies we've held.
We love to celebrate children's acheivments in and out of school in our assemblies, if you think there is something worth mentioning in assembly please email Mrs Jarrett or
Mrs Tomkinson on:
ANNOUNCING HOUSE AND SPORTS CAPTAINS!
In today's assembly we announced our new House Captains and Sports Captains. The House Captain candidates had to do a presentation to the rest of their house team group. The children within that house then put forward their vote.
The Sports Captains had a different approach. Mr Leaman asked the children to fill out an application form and the child who he felt was most qualified was put forward.
Well done to our new Pupil Leaders! Look below to see who they are!
CHURSTON LIBRARY WINNERS!
Today we had Melissa from Churston Library come and visit us. Just before the Summer Holidays Melissa set the children a 'SPACE CHASE' reading challenge! Today she came in to award the children that took part with their certificates. Look at how many completed it! Wow!

RECYCLING AT WHITE ROCK
Today in assembly we were talking about ways that we can help the planet by recycling! Mrs White thought it would be a great way to save on plastic bags by using an old t-shirt and making it into a reusable bag for shopping! She now want's to share her skills with the children at White Rock so that they have their own reusable bag at home! We have asked children to bring in an old t-shirt on Wednesday, if they would like to take part. We hope lots of children enjoy this fun way of recycling!
AVA AND HAILEY SING
Another Friday Assembly full of achiements and surpirses. This week's included some fantastic singers! Ava will even be competing in The Voice UK For Children! Good Luck Ava. To see, keep scrolling...

WHITE ROCK'S GOODBYES
Today was an emotional assembly as we had to say good bye to one of our most valued Teachers, Mrs Sage. Mrs Sage has been at White Rock for over 4 years and has helped with choir, music festivals, learning celebrations and so much more. She is moving up North to live closer to family but said that "White Rock will always be a part of her", we will certainly miss her greatly here and wish her lots of luck in the future.
We also said Goodbye to Miss Clohessy, not because she's leaving, but because in the Easter Holidays she will be getting married! When she comes back she will be Mrs Clohessy-Brown. Congrats from us all at White Rock!
Lastly a farewell for now to Miss Wallwork, who is leaving us for a few months to go off on Maternity leave. She has promised to send us photos of her new boy or girl... We will have to wait and see!
Our brilliant and talented SWAY DANCE club performed to the whole school today! If you would like to join them go to the front office to collect a letter and sign up. See below for the video:

ROAD SAFETY WITH A POLICE WOMAN
White Rock Primary School always strives to be at the heart of the community. That's why it's so important that we educate our children about Road safety and being kind to our White Rock Neighbours while using the road. Children were taught about crossing roads, riding your bike into school and lots of other things. For more information on how to stay safe on the roads, go to our travel plan page.
ANNOUNCING PUPIL LEADERSHIP
It's the start of the new academic year and along with it, it's time to announce our new Pupil Leaders. The children had to write letters and sometimes even take part in interviews to become the next Pupil Leaders. This sets the bar for the standard and responsibility that is expected of our Pupil Leaders. See the photos below to see who was lucky enough to become one of our many Pupil Leaders!
