National Handwriting Day

On Tuesday 23rd January 2024, we celebrated National Handwriting Day. It dates back to 1977 when the Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association declared it a day for celebration and it was also on John Hancock’s birthday. He was the first person to sign an important document in the United States called the Declaration of Independence. Handwriting is an important life skill, which we should embrace in our daily lives.

On Monday 22nd January, students had the opportunity to engage during an in-class assembly and discuss the importance of handwriting. On Tuesday, teachers ensured that children completed a handwriting activity during Early morning work.

All children were awarded National Handwriting Day certificates and handwriting reward stickers for their participation in the day’s activities.

Two winners were selected from each class for excellent or improved handwriting. Prizes were given during Friday’s assembly to the winners from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6.

Well done to all students for showing great enthusiasm and trying their best to write legibly and neatly.

Let’s continue to encourage them to improve their handwriting!
