On Thursday June 16th St. Anthony's School was exceptionally proud to host a day of celebrations to mark the international 'Day of the African Child'. 500 children from 15 local schools came together for a day of African themed activities including art, dance, story telling, drumming and singing. At the end of the day local dignitaries were invited, including the local MP Chris White to hear all about the super day.
Before the day, children from all the schools involved had joined in with the national Send My Friend To School Campaign which is an attempt to get all 35 million children from across some of the poorest countries in the world to be able to receive an education. As part of the campaign children made rucksacks which were then given to Chris White MP.
