Calendar of Action

Our calendar of action and learning is packed with creative ways to explore topical global issues. Each term will bring two new themes offering exciting and engaging activities, and inspirational ideas to help pupils build skills and take action. Youth Ambassador groups may design their own activities. However the calendar of action provides a suggested timetable for learning and active citizenship.
