Eco-Club Host 'World Week'
Earlier this term, our Eco-Club hosted ‘World Week’ – a week of activities dedicated to the club’s aim this year of reducing waste in School. “It’s an opportunity to highlight environmental issues to the School and give everyone a chance to take part and make a change,” explained club member Emily, Year 12.
The aims of the week were:
- To reduce waste
- To try to go plastic-free
- To recycle more
- To reduce electricity use
- To reuse rather than waste old items
- To teach others about making a change
- To reduce littering
To fulfil these aims, the girls organised activities such as litter-picking, a swap shop, and an electricity-free day, which saw some lessons without use of computers and most of the Teaching Block using natural sunlight as opposed to lights.
The girls even developed and sold water bottles bearing the school logo, and with lids in the four House colours. These proved incredibly popular, with Darnley House being the House that sold the most this term!
