Make a Difference Challenge
3rd Jul 2019
Over the last couple of months, Year 5 have been leading a project designed by themselves. The project that they have chosen to do is aiming to tackle loneliness in the local community. As part of this project, some children will be attending the Buckinghamshire Celebration Event for the Make a Difference project. The event is being held at The Waterside Theatre on Thursday 4th July between 10 – 12:30pm and the children will share a video and a scrapbook which they have created.

Young Citizens is an educational charity working in schools to help educate, inspire and motivate the active citizens of tomorrow. The Make a Difference Challenge gives children the opportunity to take the lead in identifying, researching and addressing a cause or concern that they care about, by awareness-raising, fundraising or taking direct action.
Since 2008, the Make a Difference Challenge has grown from a handful of schools in London to a nationwide project backed by Step Up to Serve, a cross-party government initiative launched by HRH Prince of Wales in November 2013. The campaign aims to get more 10 to 20 year-olds involved in social action. In 2019, 62 schools and over 2,400 pupils took part in the project in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Durham, Leeds, London, Northern Ireland and Surrey.#
