Next month in the Pōhutukawa Whānau we are encouraging children to take part in Junk Free June. This is a campaign run by the Cancer Society to help raise funds and awareness for their worthy cause. Not only will the children have an opportunity to support the Cancer Society, they will also be able to show how they love challenge and make a difference by choosing some 'junk' and giving it up for the month of June. Last year children chose from a huge range including; lollies, ice cream, fizzy drink and even video games!
The children will be tracking their progress in their hubs and you can follow our journey on the Junk Free June website. We hope to inspire other children at Beckenham School to join us in this challenge and would love to hear from any families who decide to tackle the Junk Free June challenge together.
