Girls go Green Week
In early October the School celebrated ‘Girls Go Green Week' for the third year in a row. The aim of the week was to raise awareness of the environment around us and help the girls to understand the need to try and live in a more sustainable way and think about the many ways in which we can address problems of waste and energy conservation, while also having a bit of fun along the way.
The week included a visit from ‘Rubbish Revamped', the sale of water bottles and our ‘Waste not, Grow lots, Save watts' bags, nail painting, eating onion tart made from our Juniors' home grown onions and competitions for best ‘green' ideas for the school to adopt and best reuse of waste items. Winners were Junior pupils, Lauren and Charlotte, who suggested emailing letters out to parents and making rulers and pens out of the plastic cups used in the dining room. Both girls won prizes from the Body Shop. All the money raised this week was shared between our environmental
projects in School and Ann Lipson's school in Kenya.
