Yeading Junior School

Learning, Working and Achieving Together

participation in the WE Schools programme at an event held at Thomas Goode & Co in London. Hannan, in Year 6, who is an ‘Agent of Change’, gave such an outstanding talk about her journey through the programme and how the experience has made an enormous impact on her self-confidence, as well as positive impact on the school and local community. During the event Hannan was met by Marc Kielburger, founder of Free The Children as well as patrons of the charity Holly Branson and Lord Rumi Verjee. The co-founders of Free The Children were so amazed at Hannan’s speech that she was asked to speak at an exclusive dinner held at the Bulgari Hotel in Knightsbridge, London. She received great applause after her speech and Marc Kielburger spoke of her passion, commitment and above all confidence. Hannan met Princess Beatrice at this special event and had her photograph taken; this featured in a national newspaper. Well done, Hannan! Be The Best You Can Be!

Be The Best You Can Be has been a key project for the school since the Autumn Term.


It has had a positive impact on our learning. The school was invited to take part in a special showcasing event at City Hall, London. Five children from Year 6 accompanied Mrs Whitfield and Mrs Jones to City Hall last week. The school put together an inspirational display of outstanding work with photographs and comments from various children. The children’s task at the event was to explain how they had engaged and benefitted from the project. The children took ‘dream folders’ from Year 3 and Year 6. They were a credit to the school and outlined the project beautifully as well as the children’s hopes for the future. They were knowledgeable, reflective, polite and so enthusiastic. They gained so much from the experience. Shefalee even competently took part in a question and answer session on stage.


Mrs Jones was sent an email from the CEO of the Mayor’s Fund for London stating that “the event would not have been such a success without the chance to see the inspirational work that everyone at your school has done as part of the Be the Best You Can Be programme”.

Another task “well done’ by Yeading Junior School.
