What would you do with £250 to help Make a Difference?
Sciennes' Pupil Council met on Friday 29th January to plan a school wide launch of City of Edinburgh's 'Make a Difference Award'. Pupils will take the lead in encouraging fellow pupils, classes, staff and parents to submit ideas of how they would use the award money to help make a difference to children and families living on or below the poverty line in our school community.
Your ideas might involve:
- Raising awareness of the realities of living in poverty in the UK.
- Contribute towards reducing school costs e.g. uniform, trips, books and resources for those most in need.
- Support income/benefits advice and management for families.
Schools will submit their top three ideas for judging by an independent panel. the winners from each school will then be invited to present their idea at the 1 in 5 Launch and Roll Out event on the 22nd March before receiving the £250 award money to take forward their idea in their school.
Who can enter?
Individual or groups of staff, parent councils, individual pupils or classes/tutor groups.
Submission dates for ideas?
FRIDAY 12th FEBRUARY 2016
How do I/ we enter?
Contact your school to receive a Make a Difference Award submission form.
