World Children’s Day – Wednesday 20th November 2019
This year we are really excited to be celebrating World Children’s Day with Unicef to promote international togetherness; awareness among children worldwide and improving children’s welfare. November 20th is an important date as it is the date in 1959 when the UN General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child.
As a newly awarded Unicef Rights Respecting School, we aim to be a school where children’s rights are at the heart of our ethos and culture, to improve well-being and to develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential.
This year’s theme is to #GoBlue for children’s rights to help build a world where every child is in school, safe from harm and can fulfil their potential. To celebrate World Children’s Day, we are fundraising by holding cake sales for Unicef’s campaign #BakeForSyria, the money our school raises through #BakeForSyria will help Unicef provide life-saving food, clean water, medical care and education centres for Syrian children. #BakeForSyria is a fun way for our pupils to learn about children in other parts of the world while raising vital money to support Unicef UK. Together, pupils will learn about what’s happening in Syria, get to know the children they’ll be helping and celebrate the delicious food and beautiful culture of Syria.
We would like your child to get involved by donating £1 for wearing an item of blue clothing with their school uniform – Whether this be a blue t-shirt, long sleeved top or hair band.
Students must still wear the rest of their uniform (including school shoes) and hoodies are not allowed.
Students can also donate money, buying cake (50p), blue wrist bands (£1) or blue stationary (50p) at break and lunchtime.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
