Community Helpers shows Citizenship in practice as the children of Branscombe School in Devon organise and take part in many projects for their local community. They organise several money-raising events to build up a community fund, they plant an orchard to celebrate the Millennium, and they invite all the local senior citizens to a Harvest Lunch. The book shows the children working together, setting goals, expressing and explaining themselves, making decisions and developing skills - all requirements of the Citizenship curriculum.
