Bessacarr Primary Halloween Festivities

This petition made change with 118 supporters!

It has come to our attention that Bessacarr Primary wont be holding any Halloween Festivities due to what they claim to be "religious reasons". 

Our children are obliged to take part in various religious festivals and customary traditions as a part of their learning journeys, many of these may not be in line with their own personal beliefs. 

So why is a tradition celebrated by the majority being overlooked? Is it now the case that ALL religious customary traditions are to be eradicated from the school calendar? If this is not the case and other traditions are to continue being talked about, taught and celebrated then we propose Halloween be no different.

Whilst we appreciate it is now too late to change the decision for this year, we ask that this be reconsidered for future years and ample notice of any future omissions from the school calendar.
