Toilet Twinning

Toilet Twinning - Toilet Twinning

During International Week, Year 5 and 6 students will be raising money to help families build toilets who are living in extreme poverty.

Did you know that 4.6 billion people don’t have a proper toilet and that every day, over 700 children under the age of 5 die from diarrhoea linked to unsafe water, sanitation and poor hygiene. Without toilets and sanitation, rivers and ground water systems suffer become polluted and as a result, at least 2 billion people globally use a drinking water source contaminated with faeces.

International Week is a time to celebrate the diversity we have at our school and to learn about different cultures. As part of this, it is also important for our students to reflect on how life is so different for many children their own age in different countries. So, the Junior Changemakers are leading this project to highlight these inequalities and to help work towards the UN commitment of giving everyone access to clean water and sanitation (Sustainable Development Goal 6) by 2030.

For the same price as a child’s Barcelona football kit, we can help a family build a toilet and really make a difference to their quality of life.

The Junior Changemakers are asking for just 1000HUF to be donated during International Week (which can be handed to their class teacher) and let’s she how many lives we can help!


In Early Years through to Year 4, we will also continue to support organisations that work with disadvantaged young student in Nógrád County. This support will be a mix of support their basic needs along with some support for a digtal literacy programme. More details to be confirmed next week along with all the International Week activities including our National dress and flag parade day that will be held on Thursday 12th October.

Thank you!
