The GFC School have dressed up in digits and are enjoying a fun-filled day of maths activities and games, whilst raising money to support services such as Speak out Stay safe and Childline.
Number Day is observed on the first Friday of February each year and is the official fundraising event organized by NSPCC.
For nearly two hundred years, the NSPCC has led the fight against child abuse in the UK through its timely action, informational drives, and volunteering network. The charity specialise in child protection and they are dedicated to protecting children today to prevent abuse tomorrow.
Number Day helps honour the members and staff of this organisation for the courageous contribution they make whilst fighting against the social evil of child abuse.
“We are proud to be taking part in Number Day,” said GFC Maths teacher Jon Hill. “We have spent the morning using the Gillingham squad and their shirt numbers to work out a variety of equations and the students loved it.
“This opportunity has given them the chance to use their maths skills, enjoy some social activities together and also learn about a very important cause."
