We had a very productive day day working on our Gretna Green Global project.  Students learnt about the United Nations Sustainable Development goals.  Student are developing a project to help us move one step closer to reaching these goals.   Students are in the planning phase and have picked a goal to work towards.  In their journals, they are creating an action plan and working towards making the world a better place.  Some projects are to help our local community while others are working on prototypes and fundraisers to help communities far away.  

We are learning together and realizing that even mistakes take us closer to the solutions.

The day flew by and it was time to go home before we knew it.   Lots of engagement! 

Stay tuned for updates and pictures as we progress along our path to solutions.
