On purple ribbon day, we raised awareness for people with cystic fibrosis. All the children wore purple. We decorated purple ribbons and roses for the windows. We made roses out of tissue paper. On the day, the whole school stood in the shape of a heart, holding their tissue paper roses. Then the whole school paused for a mindful silence. After that, first and second class and the choir sang the 65 roses song composed by Amy. We took lots of photos and had a disco at lunchtime.
