RED NOSE DAY-Friday 19Th
‘Funny is Power’
Article 39- “Children and young people have the right to recover from difficult
things that happen to them, and they can expect to receive the help that allows
them to do so”.
The Pupil Council
have organised some activities for the children to enjoy to celebrate Red Nose
Day on Friday 19th March,
We are so proud of
how our pupils have managed over the past few months and thought they would
like the opportunity to have some fun.
We would like the
children to wear something red to school on Friday 19th March.
Please do not go to any expense-Children can wear all red or just an accessory,
such as a hat, hairband, scarf or socks.
The children will also
be encouraged to take part in ‘Share a Smile’ by sharing jokes with their
classmates prior to and on Red Nose Day. Some of these will be put on the
railings outside the school.
Children can also
share a smile individually at home, they can write their favourite joke on a piece
of paper, put it up in their window at home, take some pictures and tag
The children will
also be taking part in a quiz in the class and some other fun Red Nose Day
As well as taking
the opportunity to be part of something positive, we will be using Red Nose Day
as a learning opportunity to explore some of the issues facing young people
across the world and how the money we raise can help.
This year there will
be no cash collections in school. Donations, if desired (Suggested £1) can be
made through our own Just Giving Page. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/stjohnsprimaryhamilton
While there is no
obligation to donate we would like all children to participate in Red Nose Day
and no matter how much or little we raise, we’ll be helping change lives in the
UK and across the world.
Thank you in
anticipation of your support.
