Eco lessons at the English Class

One of the many links St John's has with the wider community is the Monday morning English Class. This is run for free by volunteers and is only open to women because women from some communities are not permitted to learn alongside men. It is so popular that they cannot all be accommodated in the parish centre and one class sits in the entrance hall. I mentioned it to an Indian friend of mine a few weeks back and she has really appreciated it. I was chatting with her after school this afternoon and she told me that her teacher had been talking about ecology, had taught her what cavity wall insulation is and had promised to explain carbon footprints next week.
