Martin Luther King Day

In assembly this morning we recognised Martin Luther King day and acknowledged his commitment, dedication and passion for civil rights in the 1950s and 60s. Although this day is not observed in the UK we feel it is important for our children to know about the challenging times he and many people faced not so long ago. We can see many of our character strengths in Martin Luther King, including perseverance, kindness, communication and respect. This week we are focusing on communication and the important to be good, thoughtful communicators. We ended our assembly with a quote from a young, black American girl who was there when Martin Luther King delivered his ‘I have a dream…’ speech – “Talk is not useless” Martin Luther King Day
