Primary 2a taught all their parents and the rest of the school about the Rainforest. There was a scientist telling us about the importance of trees and a variety of animals and insects explaining the layers of the forest and why they are important to their existence. Well done P2a!

Primary 2b have been hard at work, raising the profile of Fairtrade within the school. They have been selling bags of rice grown in Malawi. By selling 90kg of rice, we are helping to send children to school in Malawi since only 1 in 3 children will get an education.
John Riches, pictured below, is the chairman of the fairtrade rice organisation and he came in to school to thank the children for their hard work and dedication.
