Unicef Day for Change

The children, staff, parents and carers of Charles Dickens Primary School came together last Friday to celebrate Unicef Day for Change and to raise money for children in danger throughout the world. Children donated money to wear blue clothing or their favourite sports kit to school. They took part in football and other sporting activities throughout the day, along with activities to raise awareness of Unicef’s commitment to protecting children and promoting their rights. After school, parents and carers helped children to sell cakes, books and toys to raise even more money for the charity. Finally a huge crowd of children, teachers, parents and carers descended on Mint Street park to watch the annual parents vs teachers football match. Despite a valiant effort by the parents team, for the first time in five years, the teachers actually won!  A massive thank you to everyone who went out of their way to make the day such a success, and a huge thank you to Mr Vanson for organising the day so efficiently.
