It’s certainly not everyday that children attend school and are visited by a Spice Traveller riding a camel!

Here at Victoria Park Primary Academy, anything can happen. To help launch our ‘Everybody Write Day’ on Monday 1st December and week long activities, we were joined in assembly by Archibald Google, world famous spice traveller. He seemed to appear from nowhere with his enormous Google Map and his old worn out book of spice stories.

Throughout the day he spoke to all of the children and retold spice related stories collected from his travels around the world, creating a sense of culture and empathy.

The children have been inspired and enthused to write creatively in various forms and genres. More inspiration came from their visits to Humphrey the camel who was waiting to impress the crowds out on our school field. He was exceptionally well behaved and enjoyed all of the attention. Humphrey particularly enjoyed giving our Executive Head, Mr Morrish, Head of School, Mrs Dhesi and other members of staff a ride on his back.

To find out all about the work the children have put into making this week memorable, we would like to extend a warm invitation to all parents to attend our celebration assembly on Friday 5th December at 2.00pm in the school hall.

During the assembly we will also be launching ourselves as one of the first five Ashoka Change Maker Schools in the UK, to see what is involved in being an Ashoka Change Maker school we would urge you to come along.

We look forward to sharing the children’s talents with you at this time.
