Water Walk - Courageous advocacy

On Tuesday 18th July, the children took action for social injustice by taking part in a water walk to the River Arrow. The whole school walked to the shingle beach by the weir to collect water in a bucket and return it to school. They did this to reflect on the journey that many children have to make every day to get water- often not even clean water.

“Clean water for everyone everywhere” is the WaterAid cause that the children voted for and feel passionately about. They wanted to do something that not only raised money, but raised awareness and understanding of what some children must do to have access to a water supply.

To support the event, families donated £1 to twin a toilet in the school with an overseas toilet. Toilet Twinning is a charity that will use our donation to supply sustainable resources for families overseas to build their own toilets and provide education about good hygiene. The school raised enough money to twin 2 of their toilets! There is still time to contribute on ParentPay.

The event was a great success and the children look forward to continuing their mission to speak up and take action on issues of social injustice in the new academic year.
