G-Week to celebrate giving in schools
G-Week (2-8 July 2005) is a national celebration of young people and their power to shape the world for the better. It's a time for a great big pat on the back to congratulate those that got involved to make a difference to something they care about.
- Recognise how generosity strengthens the fabric of society
- Mark the achievements of pupils and chosen charities
- Progress school ethos and citizenship education
- Promote positive exposure of your school in local media
- Complete your entry for the Giving Nation 2005 awards at www.g-nation.co.uk/awards
Review the year’s action for charity and community within form or subject time. Examine the value of your activities for the cause you helped and the benefit to pupils that took part. Or use the G-Week lesson planfor a unique interactive look at how lifestyle choices can change the world.
Five PowerPoint presentations introduce G-Week and the G-Week challenges to pupils. Each can be customised to your school, your pupils and their achievements.
High quality A4 certificates are personalised by overprinting from our Word template: enable you to recognise pupils who have excelled for charity or community (order as many as you like!).
