    Thank you for the lovely idea @Kasa2103 I've updated our schedule. We might do a New Years Eve/ New Years one on the 31st-1st. What does everyone think of that idea? 
    Thank you for doing that. That sounds like a good idea. So how about Kwanzaa for 27th December to 30th December and then New Years Eve/Day on 31st December and 1st January? Good way to negotiate. ;)
    Everyone is special in their own way. We make each other strong (we make each other strong.) We're not the same. We're different in a good way. Together's where we belong. We're all in this together. Once we know. That we are. We're all stars. And we see that. We're all in this together. And it shows. When we stand. Hand in hand. Make our dreams come true.

    Hope you all like colours today for Breast Cancer Awareness Month <3
    They are amazing. I was at risk of breast cancer when I was about 8 years old but that is to be explained on a different thread.

    @Kasa2103 thank you I didn't even notice haa! I've added your one in now :) 
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    If it is not too early then on 25th January I would like to suggest red and gold  (or yellow if gold is not possible) for Chinese New Year (the official day according to Google and some other websites.)

    LOVE the confetti canon for today 😊 

    Edit: shouldn't the confetti be white? (If that's possible) as it's also known as white ribbon Day..

    Thanks @BubblesGoesBoo! I'm a day early but I won't be in tomorrow so I've changed it today. Great idea about the colours for today. I've changed it to purple and white :)

    Great idea! We'll be sure to add this onto our schedule for January :)

    I think there's a few tech issues with the boards at the moment! We'll look into it  :)

    3rd March-8th March is World Orphan Week. I learnt about it today in assembly when the deputy head was going on about SOS Children's Village.
    Everyone is special in their own way. We make each other strong (we make each other strong.) We're not the same. We're different in a good way. Together's where we belong. We're all in this together. Once we know. That we are. We're all stars. And we see that. We're all in this together. And it shows. When we stand. Hand in hand. Make our dreams come true.

    Down Syndrome Awareness Day on 21st March (aka my birthday.) And yes I am telling the truth. Not just trying to get confetti for my birthday.

    Thanks guys!

    Here's an updated list of ones we've done and are currently planning to do. :)

    January
    30th: Young Carer's Awareness Day

    February
    3rd-9th: Sexual Abuse and Sexual Violence Awareness Week

    March
    1st: Self-Injury Awareness Day
    3rd-8th: World Orphan Week
    8th: International Women's Day

    We were hoping to do World Cancer Day as well but unfortunately a few technical things stopped us from changing the cannon until now - so we decided to go straight for SASVAW. :)
