Students in Grade 2 learnt about the process cocoa beans go through to become a product. They found out many farmers do not get a fair price for the work they do and beans they grow.
At the conclusion of this unit, it is exciting to find that children are taking action due to their learning. Many children in Grade 2 are vowing to use less single-use plastic and look at labels before they buy products to make sure they are supporting local companies and Fairtrade products.
In Grade 3 students are collecting food and blankets to support Cambodian Animal Protection Association (CAPA). Many of them have also mentioned that they would like to go to Friends International and ChildSafe Movement to participate in activities, eat and shop to help raise money for their important work.
Ask your children about ways they can take action to improve the world they live in and all of its living things on their journey to becoming more compassionate, caring and responsible global citizens.
