Awareness Days are a great opportunity to educate and inform people about many issues that sometimes get overlooked. They help to raise awareness and encourage people to take action and think about their community and beyond.

Sunshine Days

Sunshine Days are a time for staff and students at CPA to come to together to celebrate different aspects of wellbeing and happiness. Everyone at the school is encouraged to dress in yellow and join in with fun games and activities that help promote community and general wellbeing.

Odd Socks Day,as part of Anti-Bullying Week

During the week of 13th – 17th November 2023 we will be celebrating Anti-Bullying Week.

To start the week, we are asking students to wear odd socks for the day to celebrate us all being unique. The day sends an important message that we should all be allowed to be ourselves free from bullying and helps us celebrate Anti-Bullying Week in a fun and positive way.

Class teachers will be able to share more about how each class has marked the week and the learning that has taken place.
