At the end of Term 4, the RE council met to discuss our school Global Neighbours links. We are building the evidence to gain a Global Neighbours Award.
They talked about our links with Starfish Malawi and started to think about ideas for a fundraising event to raise money for our link school, Mikute Primary, in Malawi.
Alongside discussing fundraising ideas for our Malawi link school. The RE council also decided to create pledges for World Water Day and World Food Day. The children have also created posters to remind their peers of the pledges.
