Daffodil Schools Challenge

Dear editor,

Marie Curie Cancer Care is calling for all secondary schools in North Wales to sign up to the Daffodil Schools Challenge by August 31, 2011.

The Daffodil Schools Challenge tasks pupils aged 11 to 16 with planning and creating a visual display based on the charity’s daffodil emblem either at school or elsewhere in the community.  Pupils are also tasked to come up with ideas of ways to fundraise for Marie Curie Cancer Care; and at the end of the academic year each school is awarded for their efforts.

When teachers register for the activity, they receive a pack containing lesson plans for Key Stages 3 and 4 or equivalent in subjects such as Citizenship, Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education and English, as well as activity sheets which take the pupils through all the elements of project management.

Money raised will help Marie Curie Nurses provide more free care to people with terminal cancer and other illnesses in their own homes or in one of the charity’s hospices.

To find out more please visit www.mariecurie.org.uk/daffodilchallenge or call Debbie on  01745 352912.

Yours sincerely,

Debbie Rowley

Community Fundraiser North Wales
