Part A: Join the school assembly

As many of you know, I am a vegan.  Some people think that vegans are weird but we are just people who believe that animals should be respected.  We don't think they should be killed or used, just to make people happy.

Vegans only eat things that come from plants.  This means that we don't eat meat, milk, cheese or eggs.  I would love it if the Mount Eaton school canteen provided a selection of vegan food every day and I'm going to tell you why.

The first thing you should know is that vegan food is healthy food.  Imagine a canteen that sold lots of fresh fruit, and where you could buy a healthy salad or a hot vegan pie for lunch.  Yum!

But another reason for having vegan food is that it is kind.  Our teachers want us to show compassion and respect to each other.  Well, eating vegan food lets you show compassion and respect for animals too.

And lastly, eating vegan food is good for the environment.  You don't need as many animals so you have less greenhouse gas.  That's gotta be good!
