School kids spread happiness with ‘Wirral Wave’

The children of Wirral are enjoying spreading positivity and creativity across our peninsula by designing ‘Wirral Waves’ to display in their schools and homes.

The idea, which originated in St Gabriel’s Catholic Primary in the North-East and was introduced to Wirral by Thingwall Primary and Greasby Infants, has taken Twitter by storm and even local businesses and other organisations are starting to join in.

The Wirral primary schools would like to encourage everyone to join in and be part of the #Wirralwave.

If you would like to take part:

  1. Draw around your hand onto paper.
  2. Decorate your hand… the brighter the better! You could even add positive messages of support and key worker thanks to lift our hearts during lockdown.
  3. Display your Wirral Wave in a window where it can be seen by people. You could stick it in a window at home, school or your place of work.
  4. Take a photograph of your Wirral Wave and tweet, including the #Wirralwave You can tag your school’s twitter address if you like as well.
  5. Tell your friends and family in other schools to join in with the fun.
  6. Watch the idea grow… How many Wirral Waves can you spot on
    your daily walks?

The Wirral primary schools feel this is such a great opportunity for all our borough’s schools and children to come together, whether attending school or remote learning from home.

Headteacher, Danielle Evans, said. “It is such a simple and easy thing to do and we hope to lift the hearts and spirits of all Wirral residents by this simple act of kindness. Who knows? Perhaps the wave will spread across the nation?”
