An assembly was held this week for a presentation by a charity called “Free the Children”. The presenter described how the founder was a 14 year old boy who was shocked some years ago to find out how forced child labour existed in some countries.
He initially asked 9 of his school friends for help and the idea grew with the end result, the Free the Children charity that does some great work in a number of countries today.
Mrs Bostock reminded the children that this was very much part of our school value system. Mrs Fitzpatrick suggested that in September our new school council should look at the charities we support and evaluate how we might help. The charity website is here… FREE THE CHILDREN
