As part of our topic on Africa, we have made a link with a colleague from Rochdale who is travelling with a group of Transformational Coaches to Liberia, Africa. During their time in Africa, the coaches will be re-building a local school. They will be providing them with clean water and shelter and they will be taking this opportunity to really make a difference to children’s lives.
In Year 1, we would like to help these coaches help the children in Africa by donating everyday items that we take for granted. On Friday 9th May 2014, Year 1 will be organising a non-uniform day in exchange for children bringing in one of these items:
· Sandals or summer shoes (they do not need to be new, used are fine, as long as they are in wearable condition).
On Monday 12th May 2014, one of the coaches will be coming into school to collect our donations to take with her to Africa. This will happen during an assembly at 2.15pm. All parents are welcome to attend the assembly to support their children.
Furthermore, the Year 1 children will be able to follow the trip and see the children in Africa by connecting to a blog, annipoole.blogspot.com.
