School visits

School Study Days at St Endellion

School parties are invited to visit St Endellion for an Educational Study Day.

The children are introduced to the main features of the church and then they break into study groups.

Half of the class will look at the colours of the church year, the Vestments and the items used in the celebration of the Eucharist ‘play’ the organ ring the bells. The other half go into the Church Hall to paint or to do some 3D craft work which can be taken back to school. After a break at mid morning the groups swap so that everyone has a chance to do everything.

For schools who wish to stay for the afternoon there is a chance to do some creative writing. All leaders are teachers or members of the clergy.

These days are suitable mainly for Key Stage 2 pupils and are proving popular.

Fairtrade Fortnight

Fairtrade Fortnight is a fun-filled highlight of the year, when campaigners, businesses, schools and places of worship show their support for the farmers and workers who grow our food in developing countries.

Fairtrade Fortnight 2017: Monday 27 February – Sunday 12 March

The food on our tables, the tea and coffee in our mugs, all from farmers who toil, sweat and slog.

However hard they work to provide the things we depend on, millions of farmers in developing countries aren’t paid what they deserve. It’s not a new problem.

We need to amplify the voices of marginalised producers as much as ever in 2017.

When we come together we can change the way people think about trade and the products on our shelves – the Fairtrade movement is made up of ordinary people doing extraordinary things in their communities for Fairtrade. Your actions help shoppers to make choices that change the lives of farmers and workers.

Join thousands of others across the UK this Fairtrade Fortnight to help our friends, neighbours, colleagues, churches and communities to use Fairtrade refreshments whenever they can – to put Fairtrade in their break and take exploitation out.
