Schools - Jeans for Genes

Get involved at school

Friday 21st September 2018

Whether you are a primary, secondary or nursery your school can make a difference to the one in 25 UK children living with a life-altering genetic disorder.

Why take part?

1

Tie it to the curriculum

We have fantastic films and assemblies to bring the subject of genetics to life. Our educational resources have been developed with teachers, testing in the classroom and are national curriculum friendly.

2

Have fun

Once the jeans are on, there’s so much more you can do. From blue cake sales to sponsored three-legged races, the more fun you have the more money you can raise.

3

Change lives

By getting everyone to wear jeans your school could help fund projects that provide nursing care, equipment, activity weekends, online support and counselling.
