Staff and Students from Stoke on Trent College will be celebrating what makes us all different and all equal by taking part in Odd Socks Day on Monday (13th November).
Hundreds of schools up and down the country will be raising money for the Anti-Bullying Alliance by wearing #OddSocks on the first day of #AntiBullyingWeek.
Nationally, over 30% of children and young people have experienced bullying in the last year alone.
Mark Whittaker, Director of Marketing, said: “This is an ideal opportunity for us to raise awareness of zero tolerance of bullying within the College whilst supporting national campaigns. Odd Socks Day is designed to be fun and is an ideal opportunity for our students to express themselves and appreciate their individuality”.
There is no pressure on students to wear the latest fashion or for parents to buy expensive costumes. All they have to do to take part is wear odd socks to College and share their pictures on the College’s social media platforms.
Students and staff taking part will donate £1 to the charity which will help raise awareness. Anti-Bullying week runs from 13th – 17th November.
