Joel's UNICEF Commitment

July 2019

This morning, Councillor Joel Williams attended the Hollies School open day in his ward. At the event he met with his collegue, Lisa Gerson, fellow Governor at the Hollies School. 

Both of them pledged to support UNICEF's Rights of the Child Commitment. Speaking about the pledge, Councillor Williams said: "This is a really important oppurtunity that will help develop pupils' acceptance of different cultures, religions and backgrounds. It's my hope that it'll provide our children with a strong moral compass that they'll be able to use in later years."

Joel continued: "I urge as any of my collegues as possible to back UNICEF's pledge and support the great work they do as part of the 'Rights Respecting Schools' program."
