St. David’s Day

Tues, 1, March%%

We celebrate the patron saint of Wales. There, people wear a daffodil or a leek around this day, as they are two important symbols of Wales. This is because the daffodil begins to bloom early in the year around this time, and the symbol of the leek is thought to have come from a group of Welsh soldiers many years ago who would wear leeks to be able to tell each other apart from the English soldiers. At school, we will be having plenty of fun activities throughout the day and the members of this House will enjoy a lovely breakfast together. In the afternoon, we will be having sports competitions between the Four Houses.
