Food for thought at Eastburn Junior and Infant School
12:43pm Friday 25th October 2013 in News
A harvest service at Eastburn Junior and Infant School gave pupils food for thought. At an assembly on Friday, to which parents were invited, there was focus on the needs of people around the world.
Lis Roodhouse, from Craven Develop-ment Education, spoke about Fairtrade.
Afterwards, Fairtrade items and home produce brought in by the children were sold, with proceeds going to Save the Children to help youngsters in Syria.
Headteacher, Jan Elliott, said the event, part of work towards a ‘Rights Respecting School’ award, was a huge success. “During the service the children showed artwork and sang songs beautifully,” she said.
“We had about 100 parents there, who enjoyed the occasion.”
About £80 was raised, but more goods were sold after school.
