Longsight Global Citizenship Day
As part of their Rights Respecting Schools Awards programme with UNICEF, Longsight Community Primary celebrated being global citizens with a Global Citizenship Event on Friday 27th May. The day involved selling arts and crafts made by the children, these included African Safari animal puppets, placemats and masks.
They also sold treats made with Fair Trade ingredients and took part in an Safari drama class and a sponsored Water Aid challenge where they carried buckets of water around the school with their parents. Their neighbours at Big Life Nurseries Longsight joined them with their own challenge.
More than 80 parents supported the day and they raised a staggering £820 for UNICEF and Water Aid!
