Global Goals and Sustainability


The Article 12 had a meeting and unanimously agreed that we all need to do more to save our planet. 

Article 12- Every child has the right to have a say in all matters affecting them, and to have their views taken seriously.

They researched Global Goals and decided that we need to work together to make a change. 

We listened to their views and decided to get the whole school federation involved in a themed Global Goals week. 

The children voted for the Global Goal they wanted to learn about, this ranged from Zero Hunger, Clean Water and Sanitation, Sustainable Cities and Communities, Climate Action, Life below Water and Life on Land. 

See below for photos and videos from the week.
