Selling Fairtrade snacks.
We wanted to make the school aware that whilst we are lucky and have lots of food, many people don’t so: Monday we sold Fairtrade snacks to Petroc and Keyne only, then the next day to Germanus and Piran. On the days the children were not allowed to buy a treat they did feel left out!
On Friday we had a perfect world and everyone was able to buy snacks.
The children began to appreciate what it felt like to not always have a choice and were able to start to understand that this is the case for many children all over the world, but on a daily basis
Carols under the Christmas Tree
Parents joined us to sing some Carols by our lovely tree.
The Eco Team served refreshments with some Fair trade ingredients
The Eco Team helped serve porridge on World Porridge day. We tried to imagine how it would feel to just have 1 bowl of porridge a day as your main meal. We looked at films of children getting Marys meals .
Most of us tried the porridge and liked it!
Don't forget we now have a re-cycling bin for your unwanted clothes, shoes etc. in the car park. The clothes go to the Salvation Army and the school receives a payment based upon the weight of your contributions
