Trinity kids take the fruits of food project to market

Have your say

A “HOME-GROWN” market is set to take place at Trinity Primary School as part of a joint project with its partner school in Tanzania.

The project, called Food For Thought, has seen pupils at both Trinity and Luhira primaries learn about food in their countries – how it is grown, how it gets to their plate and what makes a healthy and balanced diet.

It has also covered Fairtrade food products, food sustainability, carbon footprint, obesity and famine. The project will culminate in the Trinity Home-grown Market tomorrow before two members of staff visit the African country.

Class teacher at Trinity Primary and global schools coordinator, Stephanie Holmes, said: “On Saturday, myself and the headteacher at Trinity are going on a trip to our partner school in Tanzania, and we will take over some of the work that pupils at Trinity have been doing for comparison with pupils at Luhira Primary.”
