WE Day - Wembley March 2019

Posted on March 07, 2019

Members of the School Council, Pupil Executives and some Year 5 & 6 pupils from Forest Academy were invited to attend WE Day 2019.  This event is organised by a charity called “Free the Children” and is being held to inspire young people to become involved in making positive changes in their local and global community through various activities and fundraising ideas.  It also celebrates and shares young people’s inspirational stories.  Just like every year there is a star-studded guest list.  In the past there have been performances by Jessie J, the Vamps and Rita Ora!

This year the line up was royal! Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan were in attendance as well as Liam Payne, Tom Walker and Pixie Lott, just to name a few. The event was held at The SSE Arena in Wembley.

After an early start, 7am (yawn) the children went off on the minibus with Mrs Wray and Mrs Chater

All the pupils seemed to enjoy themselves as weel as the staff!!

As one pupil said "wow, this is amazing"

It truly was.
