Newlands has been recognised as a School of Sanctuary and Mrs Jones and three of our Global Ambassadors, were invited to the Mayor's Parlour along with the 8 other schools across the city to receive an award.
Lucy, Lydia and Josh were received by the Mayor and the Mayoress and accepted the award on behalf of the school during a ceremony on Tuesday afternoon. Josh tried on the Mayor's robes and all three pupils were invited into the Mayoress' parlour and sat on the sofa where Royal visitors sit when they visit Southampton.
Our Global Ambassadors have also been fundraising for a refugee school in Jordan through a tombola and cake stall after the KS2 Sports Day and raised £62.
Parents are invited to attend a special assembly on Monday afternoon to learn more about our Global Week and School of Sanctuary Award.
