School Hygiene Essentials Initiative – NAPE 036

On the podcast this week I talk to Peter Cansell – NAPE Information Officer about how they are working with Essity to try and improve hygiene standards in school toilets.

 

Last year Essity founded and launched the School Hygiene Essentials Initiative which is a collaboration of hygiene, health and education experts who are working together to try and improve hygiene standards in school toilets and improve hygiene education for children.

 

Partners in the School Hygiene Essentials Initiative include the National Association for Primary Education (NAPE), the School and Public Health Nurses Association (SAPHNA), childrens’ bladder and bowel charity ERIC, the Paediatric Continence Forum (PCF), Bladder and Bowel UK, and In Kind Direct who help distribute essential products to community organisations including schools.

 

This is a good example of the collaborative work NAPE is able to do in supporting schools beyond policy and curriculum subjects.

Festival of Voices 2019 – NAPE 035

As a non-political charity the National Association for Primary Education (NAPE) does some incredible work to support children live their best lives from birth to 13.

Nothing epitomises this more than their Festival of Voices concert series that has been in existence for 36 years. This event at Dorchester Abbey brings around 240 school children together to perform in a beautiful venue with a live band. Not only do they do this once but due to the demand they now produce 6 concerts in one week during June.

NAPE is run by volunteers and it is a credit to their enthusiasm and dedication that such a concert series is possible.

Over the 36 years of Festival of Voices, the regional event at Dorchester Abbey – run by the Oxfordshire branch of NAPE – has been expanded to include a national concert at venues such as Wembley Conference in London and Symphony Hall in Birmingham.

This year to celebrate the 36 years of success we decided to create a behind the scenes podcast and video so you could see and hear from those involved.

The culmination of a children’s choir, supportive teachers and an audience of proud, passionate families makes for something quite special.

If you would like to see what an ‘on location’ podcast looks like to record please watch the video on the NAPE website.  nape.org.uk
