Opportunities for Community Outreach

Week #7 Meeting #17

Great to meet with teachers from the Blackbird Academy Trust schools today - Pegasus, Orchard Meadow and Windale. A really positive discussion about building the strike action and how we reach out to NUT members and to the school community.

In particular, members were keen to take up #greenfridays as a way of building confidence and solidarity within school, and also to have a stall at the three-school summer fete on 2nd July, with balloons, stickers and information about the strike action and wider campaign for families.

Have you thought of having an NUT stall at your schools fete? We can supply materials and may even be able to help with staffing stalls if appropriate - please get in touch.

I was particularly impressed that our Pegasus Rep, Lucie Garland, baked cakes for the meeting (sadly, I didn't get a picture). In the process of organising, we have also recruited new Reps at Windale and Orchard Meadow. We hope to hold meetings in each of these schools over coming weeks.
