Global Learning at St Columb Major
This academic year, pupils in St Columb Major and across the Kernow Learning trust have been involved with the Global Learning initiative: investigating their connections and relationship with the global community, environment and role as ‘global citizens’
After a very successful Global Link Launch, where we celebrated our tangible connections with the global community. This term’s focus has been on food production, consumption and specifically the United Nation’s Global Goal of Zero Hunger. With 1 in 10 people globally and 1 in 9 in the UK experiencing malnutrition, this Global Goal aims to eliminate hunger by 2030.
Pupils, parents and governors at St Columb Major have been exploring our connection to food production, food sustainability and how global issues such as climate change are connected and profoundly affecting food production. Once we have dissected these issues the pupils then design methods of solving these problems with the vital aim of inspiring hope and empowering pupils to play a confident and constructive role in their futures.
