CLS takes part in the Lord Mayor's Show

Friday, 19 November 2021

We were thrilled to take part in this year's Lord Mayor's Show, on Saturday 13 November. We represented the square mile’s appreciation for the youth and education, and a group of CLS pupils and staff took to the streets of the city on the 'moving forest' float. The float represents our Environmental, THINK, Afro-Caribbean, and LGBTQ+ societies; a small snapshot into extracurricular learning on offer at CLS. Each society held a floating globe with a logo the pupils designed themselves. 

The bicycle-powered moving forest demonstrated the City’s clear trajectory towards a more sustainable future. On behalf of our Charity Committee, our Papyrus banner helped to raise awareness for the pressing issue of young suicides in the UK. Lastly, our three rear floating globes each showcased our school motto: Kind, Aware, Ready. 

Plants that were used on the bicycles will be planted in our playing fields at Grove park, where we're creating a nature habitat. The other items used in the parade will either be recycled or reused by us at School.

We would like to thank Mr McDonough for his efforts in arranging the show, as well as Lord Mayor Vincent Keaveny, who is a School Governor, for giving us the opportunity to take part in a wonderful day.
