A snapshot of a morning in the life of Gad’s student shows how happy and healthy our 3-16 year-old children are, on what is claimed to be the most depressing day of the year.
Music and Movement, football in the sun and a new woodwork project are just some of the activities happening at Gad’s right now, on Blue Monday.
Today is said to be the worst of the year, due to poor weather, failing New Year’s resolutions and low motivational levels, as well as other contributing financial factors.
However, the #GadsFamily is certainly fighting the blues! Our youngest students started the day with a round of ‘Heads, Shoulders’ Knees and Toes’, while Year six classmates enjoyed their weekly swimming lesson at a local leisure centre.
Gad’s Director of Music, Mr John Stone, is teaching a budding musician a new solo recital on the Marimba. At the same time, one of our Year seven classes is busy creating a storage solution in the DT workshop.
Kindergarten children played together beautifully at break time, making up games for everybody to join in with.
Our GCSE drama students have been on-stage, practising for the upcoming production of ‘Oliver Twist’, in the school theatre, while over in the Science Laboratory, our oldest Seniors are researching and extracting DNA from a Kiwi fruit.
Meanwhile, the Gad’s catering team is busy making firm favourite, chicken burgers for lunch, accompanied, as always with lots of fresh fruit, vegetables and salad.
The #GadsFamily hopes your day is going as well as theirs!
