Jeans for Genes Day
On Friday the 18th of September, Gretton students will be taking part in this year’s Jeans for Genes Day.
We all inherit a range of talents, skills and personality traits through our genes – they’re part of what makes us who we are. But half a million children in the UK face the daily challenges of a genetic disorder.
Jeans for Genes Day invites everyone across the UK to wear their jeans for the Day in return for a small donation.There are around 6,000 genetic disorders. 1 in 25 children has a genetic disorder that makes their life very difficult. Some genetic disorders are apparent at birth while others are diagnosed at different stages throughout childhood, and sometimes into adolescence. That’s one in every class. Simply by wearing our jeans and donating, we will change the lives of these children.
In Gretton school all children and staff are invited to wear their jeans on Friday. We’d like to encourage everyone to take part so please consider sending your child into school on the day wearing their jeans and with a suggested minimum £1 donation.
Activities will take place to inform and educate students about genetic disorders.
We look forward to updating everyone with amount raised and photos from the day!
