The Great Get Together provides a brilliant reason to do something in your school to encourage community cohesion and celebrate diversity.
From Friday 22 to Sunday 24 June 2018, The Great Get Together will be taking place across the country, and they're asking schools to take part with a special assembly on Friday 22 June. This will be part of thousands of events being organised, and it would be fantastic if your school could be part of the fun.
The Great Get Together is inspired by MP Jo Cox who was tragically murdered in 2016, and it aims to bring together communities, neighbours, pupils and friends to share and celebrate all that we hold in common. Jo spent a lot of time in schools and truly believed in the importance of inspiring younger generations to be good citizens in their communities.
Resources are now available to download on the schools' page of The Great Get Together website. These include: assembly packs (pre-school, primary, secondary and sixth-form), assembly powerpoints (pre-school, primary, secondary and sixth-form) that include a video on The Great Get Together, and a guidance document for teachers written by the PSHE Association on how the assembly fits into the PSHE curriculum.
