We recently reported how Year 12 student Maisie A has been working to earn the school a bronze Eco-Schools award. We are pleased to announce that this status has now been achieved. Well done, Maisie! In her own words, here’s how she did it, with the help of staff and pupils:
“To reach the bronze award we had to complete three simple steps: form an eco-committee, undertake an environmental review and complete an action plan. Since then, we have begun to make changes in school. So far we have placed recycling bins in classrooms and have put up signs to remind both pupils and teachers to turn lights and computers off when no one is in the room. I have also produced an eco-notice board to display the action plan and environmental review – you can see it on the stairs just outside the library.”
The next stage on Maisie’s Mission is to complete the silver award. More of this later!
