On Friday October 17th the year 5 and 6 School Councillors attended a Youth Summit hosted by Hartsdown Secondary School to discuss major issues facing our society today. After a moving assembly showing the struggles other people face in global community for the most basic of human rights, they participated in a variety of workshops identifying how they could combat some of the issues in our local area. These issues ranged from pollution of our beaches and how to improve recycling to how we, as a school and with other schools, can help to raise money and awareness for those that have very little.
The children participated fantastically asking meaningful and insightful questions and, as a result, were then inspired to take part in a local and global event that will help to make a difference to those that need it most. The School Council will be leading us in a number of charitable events to show that we really can make a difference. Letters providing information as to how you can help will be released in the near future. Thank you to Mr Briggs for accompanying the children.
