Mrs Hughes is working with a group of 10 children in school and they are our one worlders.
One World is an international character building program that generates civic commitment to school, local, national and global communities. Our club will hopefully develop a network of globally aware youth leaders of character; knowledgeable of the world around them and capable of changing it for the better.
The children have developed :-Core Values
They are also looking at how they can help with poverty. They have invested a small amount of money into a small farm in Columbia.
The farmer can buy more seeds to grow his crop. When he has harvested his crop and makes a profit we will get that money back. The children will then reinvest it into another small business in a different part of the world.
The children were left shocked and upset when they realised how the farmer lived in poverty. They were really thoughtful and inspired to help. They also realised that they were actually really well off compared to others and should really stop moaning about not having the latest iPhone.
I am sure you will agree that this is fantastic work. Thanks to all our One Worlders and Mrs Hughes. You a really making a difference.
Mr Cass, Headteacher
