It’s World Book Day 2015, and we’re celebrating!

We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE books at Wilberfoss. Our library and shelves full of all sorts of books, all beloved by our children, attests to that. So of course we share in the fun of World Book Day….

But first, we seem to have something of an invasion of Wallys…

Year 5 and 6 are both studying The Greeks this term. This will involve work across all subjects, all beginning with a fabulous launch day – dressing up, stories of brave Greek heroes and heroines fighting cruel Greek Gods and Godesses, designing Greek Vases and all finished off with a Greek Feast!

Year 5 looking fantastic…

We’re pleased to announce that Wilberfoss Primary School is taking part in the Toilet Twinning campaign to raise funs for charities Cord and Tearfund, to enable people living in poor communities to have clean water, a decent toilet, and to learn about hygiene – a vital combination that prevents the spread of disease, reduces the number of deaths among children, and brings hope for the future.

For a £60 donation, you can twin your toilet at home, work, school or church with a latrine in: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Burundi, Cambodia, The Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Liberia, Nepal, Uganda.

When you twin your toilet you’ll receive a certificate of your toilet’s twin, containing a photo, the latrine’s location and its GPS coordinates so you can look it up on Google Maps.

Your donation is used by Tearfund and Cord to enable local communities to learn about the difference a toilet will make to their lives. When families work together to install water pumps, build toilets, and learn about basic hygiene, the health of the whole community improves: parents are able to work in their fields and grow crops; children are able to go to school and get an education.

 

2.5 billion people – that’s 40% of the world’s population – don’t have somewhere safe, clean and hygienic to go to the loo. The human impact of this scandalous stat is enormous: nearly one in five child deaths each year is due to diarrhea. The good news is you can help change this by twinning your toilet!

For people in poor communities, a hole in the ground is quite literally a life saver – protecting women from the risk of attack as they find somewhere private to squat, and shielding children from preventable diarrhoeal diseases. By twinning a toilet you’ll be helping those who most need it access safe sanitation, clean water and hygiene education.
