London primary schools making a difference
Eleven London primary schools that have taken up this year's Go Givers 'Make a Difference Challenge' will be sharing their achievements at the third annual 'Make a Difference Challenge' celebration event at City Hall on Tuesday 30 March.
In London's Living Room, on the top floor of City Hall, pupils will be showcasing their school's work for this active citizenship project organised by the Citizenship Foundation.
Since January the children have been investigating a cause or concern of their choice, ranging from reducing anti-social behaviour to reversing the decline of bumble bees. They hope to mobilise their schools and local communities to make a difference by raising awareness, raising funds or taking direct action with their own creative solutions.
The Go Givers 'Make a Difference Challenge' is in the final year of its pilot phase and will be rolled out to all Greater London education authorities next year. The project is also running in Birmingham and Walsall.
