Children Make A Change At Glusburn Community Primary School
Chloe Allan, a member of the UNICEF Team awarding Miss Brennand with her certificate
On 1st February 2019, pupils and staff at Glusburn Community Primary School took part in UNICEF’s Day for Change 2019 to raise money for UNICEF projects in developing countries around the world.

This is the 11th year that the school have held ‘Day for Change’, supporting children’s rights to good nutrition, an education, sanitation, clean water, health care and, this year, a clean environment.

Olivia Bryan Charlton won the KS1 art competition
The pupils have been looking at plastic waste and how many children in developing countries live alongside heaps of plastic rubbish, for example in Kathmandu, Nepal. They understand that there is now so much plastic in the oceans that it is entering the food chain.

So, the school's UNICEF Team led the children in a day of activities, enjoying the teacher’s Glusburn Bake–off with all cakes decorated on a plastics theme and the winning cake raffled and won by Jewel Turner from Year 6.

Another event was a Day for Change quiz with winners taking on the roles of head teacher, school secretary, PE coach, teaching assistant and mid-day supervisor

A plastic facts hunt was set up as an orienteering activity in the school grounds and a celebratory assembly at the end of the school day for pupils and parents, to raise awareness of the need to take care of our environment for children around the world.
