Discovering how Our Community works
This Programme is designed for children between the ages of 7 and 8.
It offers insight into how important it is that different community members work together for the community to live in harmony. It also introduces the concept of voting, how money goes round a community and the reason people and companies pay taxes.
The Our Community programme is a fun and interactive series of 5 lessons presented by a business volunteer in school to the whole class. They assess the needs and wants of communities and set about taking responsibility for the community they have designed through voting in a decision-making activity.
