Class Selam Helping Poverty

Transition Year is a year where while you still have classes, you get a chance to get much more involved in projects and practical work. My class, Class Selam, are doing a number of projects in our religion class with the help of our teacher Ms. Kavanagh Bracken to contribute to helping poverty.

While we are planning lots of things for the near future, last week we got involved with www.freerice.com This is a website we all logged onto which donates grains of rice to hungry people based on the number of people who log on to take part in answering simple questions. During class, 30 St Wolstans students from class Selam took part.

Today, my class also completed 'Operation Christmas Child'. We divided into groups, gathered gifts and filled a shoebox, per table, full of Christmas gifts to send to those less fortunate this Christmas.

These are just two examples of the many things our class hope to do over the course of the year to help poverty world wide.

We will keep you posted on our work!
Ellie :)
