"We don’t want to let their transitions go unnoticed. A collective country-wide celebration in the form of the Big School Bell is a wonderful way of celebrating their transitions. It will provide them some closure after, what have been, very trying circumstances over the last few months.”
The campaign seeks to create a single moment of national recognition on Friday 24 July – which is the last day of school anywhere in the country. At 4pm a school bell – available at www.bigschoolbell.org – will ring out across the nation to mark this critical milestone.
After the bell has chimed an ‘end of year message’ will be delivered by TV host and The Maths Factor creator, Carol Vorderman, to mark the occasion.
