Share a Pencil Day is an awareness and an education day. A fun and interactive way for schools, teachers and pupils to explore the reasons why millions of children globally are missing out on an education, and why that matters. FREE lesson plans, short films and classroom notes are available to participating schools.
(Share a Pencil Day is not a fundraiser or charity day so no need to ask anyone for money or any parental engagement.)

Why Share a Pencil?
Millions of children all over the world who do not have access to education or lack the basic tools they need for learning. Sometimes large groups of children have to share exercise books, paper and even pencils and pens.
Share a Pencil Day is about learning, it's about engaging children and teachers in the UK to help everyone understand a little more about the difficulties faced elsewhere.
Participation could be limited to one class or one year group, all of KS1 or KS2, what ever suits your school best.
In 2018 more than 80,000 children signed up from more than 400 schools. Join Us
