2023 Back to Basics Day
We are proud to have raised money to support UNICEF’s vital work for the Emergency Appeal for Children in Israel and Gaza during the current crisis. These children are currently not having their right to safety or a good quality education respected.
No place is safe for a child while the intense fighting continues. Following days of air strikes, children and families are running out of food, water and electricity. Medicine and safe access to hospitals is severely restricted.
For this reason, Seal CE Primary went back to basics! For one day, we took away all of the luxuries that we are lucky enough to enjoy at school. As a Rights Respecting School, we are aware of our fundamental rights and we understand that they are not being respected in this crisis. That is why we campaigned for this cause.
£68 could help pay for school supplies to help at least 20 children continue their education in an emergency; £39 could provide a family with an emergency water and hygiene kit and £32 could help provide blankets for 5 children. When we last checked, the amount we have raised is a staggering £2,301. This money provide support for nearly 680 children currently suffering at the hands of the conflict.
Below is a video demonstrating our efforts from the day along with some images.
