During September, all of the children and staff collaborated to make a stunning pair of wings. The children were inspired by a poem written by a young, Australian poet, Erin Hanson. You might recognise part of the poem,
And you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh but my darling,
What if you fly?
The children then looked at some precepts from the books ‘Wonder’ and ‘We’re All Wonders’ for further ideas. They chose their favourite or composed their own, which they wrote on their individual feather. Some of our younger children wrote their dream on a feather instead. The feathers are displayed in a prominent place in school so that whenever the children pass them, they can appreciate the beauty that can be created when we all come together. It also allows us all to be inspired by the positive thoughts of others.
