HOST YOUR OWN PINK TEA

The Famous 5 Foundation encourages teachers and students to host a "Pink Tea", in celebration of their Famous Five studies. Invite parents and other community members to join you for an afternoon tea and a “conversation of consequence”. Everyone can share their views on an issue that challenges their community. This is an excellent opportunity for students to use the knowledge they have gained during their studies, and use critical thinking skills in a debate about issues of importance.
