Always defer to your school’s photography and safeguarding policy. For photos that can be shared more widely, one school suggested taking photos that children can’t be identified in. For example, hands playing with water, ocean art creations, or taking a photograph from behind so that only the back of children’s heads are in view.
To share your photos on social media, use the following profiles and hashtags.

Stories and Quotes
We’ve really enjoyed hearing what you have planned for the day and how it goes down with children. We’ll be checking our emails throughout the day and during the following week, so please feel free to share how you’re celebrating and any quotes or reactions from children, parents or teachers!
— Here’s a lovely story we received last year…
“Wow, I’m totally buzzing after my World Oceans Day assembly. We showed your video and had a long line of children from reception to year 6 giving their interesting ocean facts to the school. Then I got the whole school to do one huge great Mexican wave. Thanks for all your help with resources etc. Everybody feels really emotional about this topic so it is so good to have a day to raise awareness”.
– A teacher from St Johns Buckhursthill School.
Take a look at some tweets and posts from schools participating last year.
We turned our puffins into Father’s Day cards as when googling, found out the male puffin is one of the most dedicated dads in the animal kingdom. 💕 pic.twitter.com/jsF7T19NDm— Ceridwen (@Teacherglitter) June 7, 2019
