Waverley Abbey receives Global Neighbour Bronze award!
From recycling, saving energy and litter picks to supporting Toilet Twinning, pupils and staff at Waverley Abbey Junior School have been working hard to take their place as global citizens.
Waverley Abbey Church of England Junior School, Tilford near Farnham has achieved Bronze Award status in Christian Aid’s Global Neighbours scheme in recognition of its wide-ranging steps to love their global neighbour.
The accreditation scheme celebrates schools that are helping pupils learn about global poverty and the Christian responsibility to tackle it, as well as giving them the tools to play a confident part in creating a fairer world.
Alison Brown, Global Neighbours Schools Programme Officer at Christian Aid, said: “The Global Neighbours Scheme was launched in partnership with the Church of England’s Education Office with a vision of helping young people understand more about the inequalities in this world and helping them to become courageous advocates for those who have no voice.
It’s wonderful to see how staff and pupils at Waverley Abbey Junior CE have taken this to heart and are seeking to tackle injustice.
