From our youngest children in Nursery to our soon to be leavers in Year 6, the whole school gathered together in the Sports Hall this morning for a very special assembly with Perry the Bull – the official mascot for the 2022 Commonwealth Games here in Birmingham.
Perry is certainly a proper Brummie: strong, kind and a little bit cheeky! Perry taught the children lots about the history of the Commonwealth Games as well as introducing all of the different sports that will be on show in our great city. The children saw glimpses of where the Queen’s Baton has already been on its epic 294-day journey across the Commonwealth, and heard how it contains a special message from her Majesty, which will be read at the Opening Ceremony.
Perry was very excited to hear about our own 300th celebrations at BCS and even had his own photo in our 300th selfie frame!
