A COMMUNITY Week was held at King James’s School, Almondbury.
The week promoted the school’s community cohesion practice.
The aim was to help pupils to learn to understand others, to value diversity while also promoting shared values, to promote awareness of human rights and to apply and defend them, and to develop the skills of participation and responsible action.
The week was also aimed at developing links among pupils, families, staff and the users of the school’s facilities and services.
There was a focus on faith, ethnicity, culture and socio-economic factors.
All curriculum and pastoral areas within the school contributed to Community Week and many outside speakers gave talks.
The school also welcomed residents and users of the Homestead Day Care Services.
For several weeks service users visited King James’ School during the week and were shown some of the artefacts demonstrating the school history.
