What is the Harmony Group?
Our Harmony Group was originally formed when Yeadon Westfield Junior School worked towards the Stephen Lawrence Award. We were really pleased to achieve Level 2 of the award. The focus at that time was to raise awareness of different cultures and to encourage respect for others and their beliefs or way of life.
The Harmony Group work closely with the School Council and continue to promote these values. They help to lead assemblies and projects in school, particularly those which reflect different cultures or promote the idea of "Living in Harmony", both within our school community and beyond.
Every year the group organise "Fairtrade Fortnight" and are currently working towards gaining Fairtrade status. They also help to lead 'Anti-Bullying Week'.
Bradford North Foodbank
Summer Appeal 2018
The Harmony Group are supporting a local foodbank's appeal for food and toiletry supplies for the summer holidays. We have set a target of filling 1 box per year group of key food items that the foodbank is in particular need of during the holidays.
Please see the poster below for information about those key food and toiletry items and, if you would like to help, please kindly send your donation into school before the end of term.
With many thanks for your support,
The Harmony Group
When the Harmony group met the Swedish Students
The Swedish students came to visit the children at Yeadon Westfield Junior School on Tuesday 28th November to observe and ask questions on school life in England. The children had great fun showing the students around the school and they were very enthusiastic when asking the Swedish students questions.
Here are a couple of the questions that were asked:
It snows quite a lot and it is very cold.
Around 10 million.
The children don’t have to wear uniforms, they have a normal school dinner like we do, however they don’t have dessert.
Yes, and they change each month to allow children to have a fair turn.
We celebrate Christmas on the 24th December and Santa comes during the day to us.
We have Ham instead of Turkey but the rest of our meal is the same as the English Christmas dinner.
9.30am until 2.30pm.
August to June.
Nursery to year 6 and then the children go on to high school the same as English children do.
