The Global Goals Group held their inaugural pupil-led Climate Action Conference on Tuesday. The aim of the conference was to share the work undertaken by the group this year and to look at developing activities/partnerships for Session 2019-20.
Pupils invited members of local action groups, elected members, members of the Parent Council and other partners into the school, in order to deliver presentations about the work undertaken this year. A lot has been achieved by group with planning for new projects already in the pipeline.
Thank you to everyone who has supported the group this year. If you’d like to join the group, please just speak to a member of the staff team, or pop along to one of our weekly meetings.

The Fairtrade Group marked International Women’s Day on Friday by hosting a fair supporting the “She deserves: a living income” campaign.
The Fairtrade Group encouraged attendees to complete one of the “She deserves” postcards urging the UK Government to ensure that living incomes are paid to cocoa farmers – women farmers suffer the most from low wages – to enable them to fight their way out of poverty.
Thank you to everyone who came along to support the event!
