Pupils from Pinchbeck East Primary School created a whole-school rainbow to celebrate Unicef’s Day For Change.

The rainbow day was also to mark the school’s achievement of becoming a ‘Rights Respecting School’.

The award is a Unicef (United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund) UK programme that aims to put children’s rights at the heart of schools in the UK.

Head teacher Teeny Vayro said: “We aim to embed children’s rights in our ethos and culture to improve well-being and develop every child’s talents and abilities.

“We have a steering group of children and adults from the school and community who work together to develop an understanding of the Convention of Children’s Rights.

“By each class dressing in a rainbow colour, the children brought in a donation to support the invaluable work of Unicef for children all over the world, whose rights are affected by war, famine and poverty.

“In total, we managed to raise £245.

“Many thanks to all our children, staff and parents who supported our charity day.”
