Year 5 discovered that children in Peru are working to transform their community with our partner Warmi Huasi, just as they have done in Baldock by telling friends, family, and supermarket shoppers all about fair trade.
Each class decorated their door and Year 5 were voted the winners.

Year 6 are also learning about Archbishop Romero and how he stood up for poor communities in El Salvador and spoke out against inequality and injustice. Inspired by Romero’s words “everyone of us is called to be a microphone of God”, Year 6 made a wonderful display including pledges to buy Fairtrade’, ‘care for one another’  and ‘share’.
