Together with the Stop TB Partnership and UK Coalition to Stop TB, RESULTS UK has been working on a project to raise awareness among young people of TB as a global problem but one that we could see an end to in our lifetime.
We planned a small number of school assemblies in the run up to World TB Day on 24th March and following on from their success, we recently relaunched our assembly programme.
Throughout the summer and autumn terms we’ll be working with schools to hold assemblies in the run-up to Universal Children’s Day on 20th November.
We’ve put together an assembly pack and PowerPoint which schools can use to help plan their assemblies, plus some hints and tips for follow-up activities, including colourful postcards which pupils can send to their MPs with their own personal message why TB is such an important issue. We’re happy to chat through the materials and provide additional information for anyone wanting to know more about TB and all the activities are closely linked to the curriculum.
The assemblies are a great way to tap into work that pupils may be doing in several subjects, including biology, geography, citizenship and a chance to engage them on an issue which often has local, national and international relevance.
If you’re a teacher, pupil or have close links to a school and would like to help organise an assembly, we can support you every step of the way – just get in touch with Charlotte by email on firstname.lastname@example.org
