Celebrating Difference (Autumn Term)

Today, the children were looking at the question, 'Can money buy happiness?'

They looked at case studies of two children in Ghana with different backgrounds. The first was about a child who works on a Cocoa Plantation with their family and have to produce their own food. The second was about a child who is privately educated, but does not see his family often as they work away. The children had to rate what they felt was most important for the child in each scenario. They blew me away with their discussions about the important things in life. Our children believed that money cannot buy happiness!
