JIA Awareness Day

Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is the most common type of arthritis in children and teens. It typically causes joint pain and inflammation in the hands, knees, ankles, elbows and/or wrists but it may affect other body parts too. 


As an inclusive school, we wanted to raise awareness and support children and families that may be impacted by JIA. We showed our support by wearing something purple to school for the day. Mrs Bray kick started our day with a whole school assembly.
