Pupils and teachers each took along a silver coin so they could be placed together to create a snake in the playground.

P6 Summer Lawson and P3 Lola Philips are the RRSA representatives who helped organise the snake.

Every year the UNICEF UK’s day for change focuses on a different theme.

This year’s theme was all about protecting children caught in emergencies, such as the recent Philippines typhoon and Syria conflict.
