World Rainbow Day

On Friday the whole school joined in World Rainbow Day, which recognised the efforts of all of the Key Workers who have worked so hard throughout the course of this pandemic.

Pupils and staff came in to school dressed in colourful and rainbow coloured clothing which were worn as a symbol to pay tribute not only to the key workers but also to the many other people within our communities who have provided support to friends and neighbours.

The idea for this came from a girl who lives in Lincolnshire, and schools across the region as well as the country joined in the fun.

Nationally the 2 October was chosen for a variety of reasons; it was Guardian Angel Day as well as World Smile Day. However, for us at St Hugh’s, it would have been the day when we came together to celebrate Harvest Festival in St. Peter's Church and we felt  this was a fitting alternative whilst we are unable to congregate.
