Wear A Christmas Hat Day at School

Wear A Christmas Hat Day is perfect for schools. It’s a great way to engage pupils, teachers and parents whilst raising vital funds to help find a cure for brain tumours.

Wear A Christmas Hat Day officially takes place on Friday 17th December but you can choose any day in December to suit you.

Getting involved

Plan for your whole school to get involved and have some festive fun:

  • Hold a hattastic competition and inspire pupils to get creative for Christmas – offer prizes for the most festive or yule-cool creations
  • Organise a themed bake sale and ask pupils to bring in their favourite festive snacks – collect donations from everyone who wants to sample the tasty treats
  • Hold a hatty fashion show and ask students to show off their seasonal style
  • Hold a hat-themed quiz for the whole school and create some competition as classes try to get the most answers right

We can't wait to see you in all your different hats!
