Pied Piper of Grade 4

Bradley started his Grade 4 year this morning and Jeanette asked if we would like to watch the tradition at the morning assembly where the Grade 4’s, who are now going into the senior primary, are piped through a corridor made up of all the school’s pupils and parents.   The new Grade 4’s turn their blazers inside and out, the boys do the same with their caps and the girls beat their straw bashers.   Pupils and parents clap as they walk through.  What a moving ceremony especially with the bagpipes!!

This young chap from the new Grade 4’s played beautifully, while the parents and school pupils gathered on the field .. all of them carrying their own chairs!!

The procession starts at the flag pole and ends at the Grade 4 classrooms …

    It was lovely this morning 🙂 glad you were there too!

  2. It must be an English thing cause at our school they don’t make any issue of kids going to grade 4. The issue is rather at home with the fact that they start with subjects and exams.
