As part of its week-long celebration of Life, Colour and Light, Bosworth Academy students held a colourful non-uniform day at the end of 2020. Students could choose to wear their brightest clothes for the day, with many choosing to wear clothes that were representative of their culture.
The whole week was a celebration of the different cultures represented at Bosworth Academy and included activities such as a Rangoli competition, a remembrance day assembly, a ‘This is Me’ activity celebrating diversity and a Dhol drummer to see the students off on their way home at the end of the week.
The fundraising for Send My Friend to school fitted beautifully with the themes for the week and students were keen to show solidarity with children all over the world. The pandemic is something that is affecting children all over the world, including young people in the UK. The money we raised can go into a force for good through the Send My Friend to School Organisation.
As an academy we wanted to promote the fact that Send My Friend to School is supporting families with digital resources to support remote access to learning, helping to provide young people with mental health resources and seeking to influence government policymakers to ensure that all children can access the education that they are entitled to.
We hope that the organisation will be able to use our contribution to support children across the world.
