 Strange Goings-on in Greenwich  

Have  you heard the tale of the Big Bad Pig prowling around Greenwich?  Children in Year 2 were so concerned that they used their powers of persuasion to ask the Mayor of Greenwich what he was planning to do about it.  

 

Lucikily, just before Easter, the problem was solved —the pig's now got a girlfriend and is much happier .  The Mayor visited Year 2 and gave his whole-hearted support to their plans.

It was Civic Week in the Royal Borough of Greenwich during March and at a special Friday assembly, Year 5 celebrated a little bit of Greenwich's wonderful past and exciting future.

 

They presented their work on Nelson Nobbs, a former pupil who served as a Royal Fusilier during World War One. As well as the whole school and parents, we welcomed  some special guests to our assembly;  the Deputy Mayor of Greenwich, Councillor David Grant, his wife  and the Deputy Lieutenant of Greenwich, Cyril Young (the Queen’s representative in the Royal Borough), also enjoyed hearing about Yr 5’s special historical project.  

 

Following the assembly, commemorative coins were given out; the coin shows the official date when we became a royal borough and commemorates us as a host borough for the thirtieth Olympic Games.  All Meridian children received a coin.
