Celebration Assembly Expectations

Our aim is to involve more children in the decisions behind various aspects of how the school is run - assemblies and hui being one aspect of this.

Based on feedback from last year the entire school have come up with some ideas for how we'd like to develop our school Celebration Assemblies.

Below are the initial ideas for how we will develop this very special time to show off the great learning we are up to: 

Burnham School Celebration Assembly
