1 in 5 Group

The 1 in 5 group is a small group of around 5 or 6 kids ranging from primary 5 to 7 who meet once a fortnight to talk about child poverty awareness.
We focus a lot on the impact of poverty on children and how that can effect a child’s ability to learn. We talk about the cost of the school day and what actions we can undertake to make it achievable for everyone. 
The group have visited the local food bank, baked and facilitated their own bake sale to raise funds for our school. The group have also been instrumental in writing to bigger organisations and company’s asking and often suggesting ideas in which they can support our school and children.
