On Friday 15th June some of our water explorers were invited to attend a Global Goals conference in Solihull. We had a morning showing off our upcyced t shirts and looking at what other children had made to show the Global Goals. There were different activities to do and then we had a lesson on the global goals and how they fit together.We took our water explorers display and spoke to several teachers and children and even the Mayor of Solihull anbout what we have been doing. She even asked for a copy of our cookbook! C said it was the best day ever as he got to talk about Water explorers to other schools.
