Commonwealth Day Observance: Schools' and Youth Groups' Registration 2015

The 2015 Commonwealth Day Observance will be celebrated at Westminster Abbey in the afternoon of Monday 9th March. The aim of the Observance is to celebrate the unity, diversity and linkages of the modern Commonwealth and to foster greater understanding of the Commonwealth’s achievements and role, particularly among young people. The Observance is the biggest multi-faith celebration in the United Kingdom and takes the form of a one hour service at Westminster Abbey featuring a mixture of testimonies, readings, songs and musical performances.
 
Each year the Observance is based around an annual Commonwealth Theme. In 2015, the theme will be ‘A Young Commonwealth’, underlining the fact that people aged twenty-five or under account for the majority of the Commonwealth’s population, and recognising their capacity, contribution and potential.

UK schools and youth groups are invited to register their interest for batches of either 5 or 10 tickets (including students and staff) to attend the Observance. The deadline for registration is Monday 26th January 2015. Applicants will be notified if they have been successful by Friday 6th February 2015.
 
IMPORTANT: Please note that registering interest does not guarantee an invitation to the Observance Day event, nor that schools will receive the requested number of tickets. Priority will be given to schools and youth groups that can show engagement with the Commonwealth (either through participation in the RCS Commonwealth Essay Competition, school linking and other education projects) and that have not attended the Observance before. Thereafter, tickets will be allocated to schools by ballot.

All travel costs are the responsibility of the participating school or youth group.
