KS1 TWITTER- #OurDay NOVEMBER 2017
On Tuesday this week, our own Mrs Story helped spread the word of the important work many local authority staff do across the county by taking part in a national twitter campaign #OurDay. The campaign was organised by the Local Government Association and we helped out by working with Nottinghamshire County Council to showcase what great work happens in Nottinghamshire to improve the quality of life for residents.
Mrs Story and some of her Year 3 class featured in one of the twitter posts, which were viewed over 52,000 times. Across the country #OurDay trended number 1 in the UK for the largest part of the day reaching more than 31 million people.
