Broadwater Schools will take part in this year's Children's Parade2017 is the Worthing Children's parade's 10th Anniversary, so what better way of celebrating than to use one of the worlds most loved current children's authors as inspiration for our 'big-makes'. This year we have opened up the theme so that schools may choose any character from any Julia Donaldson book to create their schools ‘big make’ entry. Each school will choose a character from one of Julia Donaldson's books. Teachers and students will work with one of the Parade artists in a school based workshop to develop their character design into three dimensions. High schools also have the opportunity of joining the parade. We are expecting some fabulously exciting designs and sculptures as Julia Donaldson's work appeals to children of all ages.
On the morning of the Parade we all gather at Denton Gardens at approximatley 9am and plan to move on from there at 10am. The parade moves westwards along the Seafront towards West Buildings and then along Montague Street, all the way down to South Street; turning left towards South Street Square, the parade will then turn right onto Warwick Street and end at Steyne Gardens at approximatley 11:15-30am. The children are welcomed back into Steyne gardens by Tim Loughton and the Mayor and Mayoress along with a charity fair in aid of the Smiles Foundation. At the charity fair there will be fairground rides, hot food and drinks avialiabe and a selection of other stall as well as a plethora of children's entertainment and music provided by More FM to while away the rest of the afternoon.
