We were delighted to join the parish Young at Heart group this morning to share our recent work on Feed the World 2050 and Fairtrade.
Eight children from Y6 represented St John’s and were able to clearly articulate their understanding of why we need to support Fairtrade in light of Catholic Social Teaching and how this should influence our thinking about food production in 2050.
They explained the seven principles which make up Catholic Social Teaching as shown above. These seven keywords have made our responsibility as Catholics much clearer and helped the pupils to explain The Common Good in their own words. The pupils then mingled with the parishioners to answer questions about their work.
Fairtrade has some excellent ambassadors.
Even better was the Fairtrade cake we enjoyed afterwards!
