A 10 year old activist

At the school I’m working at, we’ve just started a blog. All in the best skunkworks taste, there’s only a few children working on it. It’s great to see them rolling up their sleeves and beginning to write some interesting stuff.

One post that’s caught my eye, partly for the response it’s had in the staffroom is this post. Zed is 10 years old. He’s seen something in his community – a run-down boat in the school playground – that he thinks needs fixing. Max and Josh agree. And they’re blogging their opinions, beginning to get it fixed off their own bat.

Do have a look and see what you think, and if you’ve got any ideas to help these activists save their boat, it’d be great if you could leave them a comment.
