Since the end of the Easter holidays, Martha has been
writing a daily food blog about her school lunches, with
the support of her dad, as a self-initiated writing project.
It also set out in the noble aim to fund the building of
kitchens for less fortunate children in Malawi, through
theMary's Meals charity.
This morning in maths I got taken out of class by
my head teacher and taken to her office. I was told
that I could not take any more photos of my school
dinners because of a headline in a newspaper
“But unlike most ten-year-olds Martha has raised
hundreds of thousands of dollars to help feed children
in Malawi, been the subject of a BBC documentary and
been toasted by Scotland’s first Minster Alex Salmond
in the Great Hall of Edinburgh Castle.”
Martha shows every facet of great learning:
...real world change, making the environment
around her better, sharing her thinking with the
world, having a conscious for the world beyond
her immediate horizons...
“But kids often defy expectations, if you give
them the opportunity.” Shelley Wright
