Yom Ha’atzmaut Celebrations were held in School today.
The day started with an incredibly moving assembly at which we conducted a short ceremony to mark Yom Hazikaron. We welcomed two Israeli soldiers who were brought over to England by the charity ‘One Family‘ and they spoke about their experiences in the Israeli army and the importance of Yom Hazikaron.
After that we moved quickly into the jubilant celebrations of Yom Ha’atmaut with a range of fun and celebratory activities.
Each child had the opportunity to buy an ice-cream from Uncle Doovy’s ice-cream van and the the staff and children enjoyed an Israeli lunch.
After lunch, the children and staff danced to the music of Moshe Tamir and JNF Madrichim (leaders) worked with the children in the playground, playing educational games on the theme of Yom Ha’atzmaut.
The atmosphere in school was electric and the children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and enhancing their knowledge of the State of Israel.through the Yom Ha’atzmaut Celebrations.
