Day of Change at Tranent Primary School

Primary 5c were involved in UNICEF’s Day for Change on 2nd February to help support education in Kenya. 


The pupils raised money by doing a sponsored ‘helping hands’ and they organised a coin collection in the school.  They tried to fill a map of Kenya with the coins.  The pupils in 5c also organised an assembly.  They reflected on their skills and applied for jobs on various teams to help with the preparations.  There was a team of script-writers, an I.T team typing up the scripts, an advertising team, a team involved in decorating the hall and making flags and a finance team who collected the money.  All ideas for the assembly were discussed in daily meetings.  The pupils really enjoyed presenting their work to the school at assembly.
