Dress as your dream occupation Friday 16th February
Throughout the school at different levels we have been learning about Developing the Young Workforce. This is about raising awareness of the skills each child has and how they could be important in the workplace. As well as this the school has recently been awarded Level 1 status in Rights Respecting Schools.
To join these two important initiatives we have decided to have a fundraiser where children can come in dressed in the clothing needed for their dream job. This fundraiser will take place on Friday 16th February. We ask that each child brings in £1 which will be collected for MAF (Mission Aviation Fellowship). This is an international aid agency which works in partnership with churches and charities including Save the Children, Unicef and Tearfund. Please note that due to school policy football strips are not permitted on this day however should your child like to dress as a football player or coach, tracksuits will be permitted.
