Thank you for signing up to Share a Pencil Day 2018 
taking place on Wednesday 23rd May 2018

We are currently creating the new teacher resource packs for 2018. We will be in touch again nearer the time with lesson plans,  short films, assembly presentations and collective worship materials plus additional helpful information about the day. Thank you for your support.

What we cover on the day...
Share a Pencil Day aims to teach children here in the UK about global education; why millions of children still don't have access to a basic education. An engaging and interactive day that helps children in our schools understand a little more about the issues faced globally by millions of children affected by extreme poverty, natural disasters, teenage marriage and war and conflict. Remember; children will be asked to share 1 pencil between 2 to help them appreciate what learning is like without the most basic materials we take for granted.   

(Ideal for use throughout the school year)
