Global Citizenship will enable us to discover how our work has influenced people and their local environments worldwide. As Global Citizenship is such a broad theme it is linked to all previous themes we have worked on. We are required to focus on the Litter & Waste aspect of Global Citizenship first.
Today we had great fun in school as we elected 6 more members to our Green-Schools Committee. Many thanks to all candidates in the election. We heard some great speeches and our classrooms are very colourful with posters and canvassing!
