10th March 2017 – During PSHE this week, our Y8 students were given a super presentation by Kate Huggett of Action For Conservation. The pupils responded really well to this, and afterwards we were delighted to receive a message from Kate saying “they were fantastic in the session, a real credit to the school.”
During her talk, Kate mentioned a Conservation Summer Camp. Katarina Lundrigen and Sarah Murray (Y11) both attended the Camp last summer. They made an excellent contribution to the presentation, and it was clear they both had a fantastic time. All students aged 12 or over are eligible to take part in this event. The camp is free, but pupils have to enter a competition individually or in pairs in order to win a place on it. There are three questions they need to answer:
1. Focus – What do you think is the most serious environmental problem facing your local area and why?
2. Action – What action would you take to solve this problem?
3. Communication – How would you persuade people to take action with you?
Pupils can answer in writing or by sending in a video answering these questions. For more details of the competition, and also a report on the last camp, click here.
