Just when most schools thought, it was safe to celebrate the end of the school term in peace, with Christmas Nativity plays and Carols galore, St. Thomas More Catholic Primary in Kettering were going above and beyond!
They were busy celebrating Advent in style when they asked local CAFOD school volunteers to come and give them some workshops about being ‘Zero Heroes’ and keeping the children up to speed on the terrible effects of climate change.
Workshops were held from Years 3 – 6 and it was wonderful to see the children and staff so engaged! (Below shows year 4 students fully participating in the workshop)
The older children were enthusiastic to share their already impressive knowledge of the effects of climate change around the world, and the younger children were just as keen to learn new facts and relate it to what they have heard in the media. (Year 5, below, were keen to engage with the workshop and be Zero Heroes”)
I’m sure the parents and families of these children heard plenty about what they should be trying to do over the Christmas holidays.
As Kate Banville, our wonderful schools’ volunteer said to the children: ‘You are the future decision makers, and it’s your world, so you tell the adults in charge the actions you want taken. You are the future of this planet!’
We look forward to hearing how the students get on in their journey to being Zero Heroes!
