This Tuesday, some pupils from Thomas Buxton Primary School were invited to the Professional Development Centre for a special launch party for the Creative Communities Handbook Launch (visit the School Office to get your hand on a handbook) attended by community leaders and workers.
This event celebrated our ‘Every Child Cares‘ project work alongside Whitechapel Mission, the Tower Hamlets Food Bank Centre and our local soup kitchen to feed and support community members in need of help.
Pupils from Thomas Buxton Primary School and Smithy Street Primary School were part of a panel who were asked questions about their project work. They discussed how they led and developed their projects which engaged local communities using action research skills.
There was also a very special video which included our work and the work of local schools within the project. Click the link below to watch it too.
Here are some pictures from last summer where the 2016-2017 School Ambassadors went to the Golden Hinde for a celebration event for their hard work in the project. They were presented with a certificate and some more funding towards the Every Child Cares project by Mayor John Biggs.
We, as a school community, have worked very hard, to make sure that all children’s rights locally, nationally and globally are being respected. We hope to continue this throughout 2017-2018 and want your help and ideas on how to do this!
