Dear Parents,

THE INTERNATIONAL FAMILY DAY CELEBRATION

 

The International Day of Families is observed on the 15th of May every year. The Day was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in 1993 with resolution A/RES/47/237 and reflects the importance the international community attaches to families. The International Day provides an opportunity to promote awareness of issues relating to families and to increase knowledge of the social, economic and demographic processes affecting families.

 

The theme of this year’s event is “Families and inclusive societies.” The 2018 observance of the International Day of Families focuses on Sustainable Development Goal 16 relating to the promotion of peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development. This year’s observance of the International Day of Families is to raise awareness of the role of families and family policies in achieving more inclusive societies from regional perspectives.

 

The school will be celebrating the International Family Day on Tuesday, 15th May, 2018 at Lagooz CBT centre. The Primary pupils will have their programme between 10am and 11am, while the secondary students will have theirs between 11am and 12noon. Pupils and students will be participating in various activities to commemorate the event. Parents who are free or not engaged at this period can participate in this event.

 

In view of this, you are expected to take a photograph of your family and send it to Lagooz Parents WhatsApp Group.

 

Parents are also to write an essay (of not more than 200 words) together with their children on ‘The Functions and Importance of Family in Society.’ This essay should be submitted to the school (through the pupils/students) on Monday, 14th May, 2018 along with a hardcopy printout of the family photograph. There will be prizes for the best 3 essays and family photographs.

 

Parents who are not yet on Lagooz WhatsApp Parents Group should send their contact (Name/Phone No.) to Mr Obinna on 08060583060 – SMS only.

 

Thank you.
