Re: Red Nose Day Friday March 15th

Red Nose Day unites the entire nation in trying to make a difference to the lives of thousands of people across Africa and the UK who are facing terrible injustice or living in desperate poverty.The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child states that every child should have a safe, happy and secure childhood and the opportunity to reach their potential. As a Rights respecting School we fully support these beliefs and have planned several activities on Friday March 15th to raise money for Red Nose Day. There are some incredible projects, in the UK and Africa, that have found ways to tackle poverty and injustice in the UK and in Africa. The money we raise will go towards the amazing work they do.You can support Red Nose Day in the following ways;

1. We are having a non-uniform day and ask for £1 contribution from each child. Children are encouraged to wear red clothes.

2. We are having year group cake sales at break time. Please send in cakes, buns and biscuits to your child’s class teacher on the morning of March 15th.

3. The cakes, buns and biscuits will all be on sale for 30p each. Please send in small change with your child to allow them to buy some cakes at break time.

4. Red Noses will be on sale at break times in 5AP’s classroom from Tuesday March 5 th, £1.25 each.

We are sure the children will have a very enjoyable day and at the same time will be supporting a charity that aims to change and improve the lives of children who have suffered poverty and injustice.

Yours sincerely
