FRIENDSHIP WEEK 8th – 12th APRIL 2019
Amnesty International Ireland promotes Friendship Week in both primary and secondary schools around Ireland every year. It is a human rights education and fundraising event that helps support the work of Amnesty defending and raising awareness around Human and Children’s Rights.
In Scoil Mhuire, Kanturk the First Year students decided to promote Friendship Week from 8th – 12th April 2019. This initiative reinforces themes within the Junior Cycle, in particular in subjects such as SPHE, Wellbeing and the English curriculum. First Years sold Friendship bracelets to the students and teachers in the school as well as organising a bake sale. The funds raised from the bracelets will go to Amnesty and the funds raised from the Bake Sale will go to charity. In addition, the First Years distributed ‘Acts of Kindness’. These are suggestions on how to reach out to people we don’t normally reach out to and provide opportunities for students to be kind to one another in different ways.
