Tuesday 20th November 2018 is UNICEF World Children’s Day. This is a chance for children to campaign to ensure all children have access to the UNICEF rights of a child.
Netley is going to focus on one particular area: AIR POLLUTION.
We have chosen this as it is shown to reduce health and well being and is a major focus for us, with HS2 and the congested roads around Netley.
We will be doing 2 things to campaign:
1) On Tuesday 20th November at 11.55am, Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 will go on a campaign march into Regents Place to hand out leaflets to show how we can help reduce air pollution. We would love parents to join us. (Please arrive at 11.45 at the office). We will walk around Regents Place twice and then return to school for 12.40. All children will be in school uniform.
2) On Friday 23rd November, we would like all children to dress in blue for the day.(EYFS, KS1 and KS2) Blue shoes, blue socks, blue trousers, blue jumpers, blue hair bands and bows etc. (We will also offer optional blue facepaint for children who want it). We would like children to donate 50p, which will go towards buying more air purifiers to help the school improve the air quality in classrooms.
