30 Jun 500 Words: Black Lives Matter
Over the past month, the world has become louder in support of equality for black and multi-ethnic lives. This conversation is highly important and even more relevant in schools and at home as we educate our young people to ensure a better, fairer, brighter future.
With this in mind, we are issuing a call to action for all pupils at Christ the Saviour. 500 Words is the world’s largest story-writing competition for children. Over a million stories have been submitted since 2011, in response to everything from technology to climate change. Now, they want to bring children’s voices onto the themes and issues emerging from the Black Lives Matter movement.
Between Monday 23rd June and Friday 3rd July, we would like to encourage all children to write whatever inspires them in a story of 500 words with Black Lives Matter at its heart. The stories could be visionary and wildly imaginative, touching, or even quirky and humorous. Overall, the aim is to inspire us with an amazing story!
More details about the 500 Words competition, including further rules, dates and how to submit can be found at the link below:
Our children inspire us to do better, know better and be better everyday at Christ the Saviour and we cannot wait to see the inspirational stories they come up with to challenge us all.
