The campaign focuses on the need to talk to children about online safety, much like we do "real" world safety such as crossing the road, bullying and speaking to strangers" - Kent e-Safety (Safe Online)
NSPCC has updated their excellent Net Aware tool, which is useful in helping parents and carers find out more about the social networks, apps and games that children may be using.
Congratulations to all our skiers! We are really proud of them all for doing so well at the Kent Ski Championships. They all competed so well against tough, well practised, skilful opposition who in the main had their own skis and equipment, whilst we were running on borrowed skis that were more like museum pieces.
It is a real credit to the children's determination they finished 3rd, 4th and 7th against more than a dozen other schools.
Excited Year 3 and 4 children from St. Stephen's Junior travelled in a lively coach to visit the Living Land on the 4th May.
The Living Land is a one day event offered to Kent school children in years 3 and 4 aimed at educating them in the areas of farming, agriculture, countryside and healthy eating within the scenic landscape of the Kent Showground, home to the Kent County Show.
On April 27th, a very kind and caring member of Year 3 had a very special haircut! Maddison who is in Oak Class grew her hair long specifically with the intention of donating it to the Little Princess Trust. This charity provides real hair wigs to children who have lost their hair through cancer treatment or other illnesses.
She had over 30cm cut off and raised over £200! We are all incredibly proud of her and think her new haircut looks wonderful! Well done Maddison - a huge achievement for a fantastic charity!
On Tuesday 18th April, thirty children from our school took part in the Canterbury Big Sing alongside a number of other local schools, professional choirs and a celebrity host.
The evening’s singing was accompanied by a professional twenty-piece orchestra. This was a great, collaborative experience for all the children involved and we had a fantastic time! A special well done to Sophie for performing a fantastic solo in the Finale.
Congratulations to all the children for working so hard, you were a real credit to yourselves and our school.
