We very much value Learning for Sustainability as a core feature of our learning and teaching. We have recently engaged with Just Trading Scotland (JTS) to further our work on Global Citizenship by taking part in the 90kg Rice Challenge! Primary 5 have accepted the role to lead us on this challenge, and together we hope we can achieve!
JTS, a not-for-profit fair trade organisation, has challenged schools, as well as churches, colleges and other organisations, to sell 90kg of rice – the amount of rice sold that would enable a Malawian farmer to pay for a year’s basic secondary education for one child.
Primary 5 will be selling the rice for £3.00 (per 1kg bag) at the open afternoon. Order forms will also be available!
