In the Christmas holidays a bulky package arrived at Woldingham School, postmarked from San Francisco, California. Inside was a little figure of Flat Stanley, a character from the book created by Jeff Brown, about a boy who had been flattened by a board and was now only three inches tall. The parcel had been sent by pupils at the Sacred Heart Stuart Hall School for Boys, San Francisco, 5,368 miles away. Woldingham pupils were requested to host and take pictures of Flat Stanley at school and on trips, to help the boys learn more about England and also about other Sacred Heart Schools around the world.
With the help of Florence Taee (Y7), Frances Russell, Ella Ewen, Georgia and India Gilbey in Y8, we achieved just that. Flat Stanley was taken to London by Florence and was photographed in front of London’s famous landmarks such as Big Ben, London Eye, Buckingham Palace and Downing Street, while also been invited to Mrs Taee’s birthday lunch. The girls have all kindly written about their experiences and sent letters off to San Francisco to tell Stuart Hall School all about the adventures Flat Stanley had whilst here at Woldingham. We are also eagerly awaiting correspondence and pictures from America.
The Flat Stanley Project has not only been a really fun educational venture, by helping pupils learn about different countries , but is also a great way to connect with the world wide Sacred Heart family of schools.
