Green Week at St. Paul’s

In the last few days, pupils have learned about the impact we have on the environment and how we can do our little bit to make a difference. We have been celebrating Green Week, focusing on environmental issues across the school with different activities.
In the Pre-Prep, the children have learned about recycling and how to separate rubbish into the correct dustbins. They have also made organic fertilizer and added it to the garden to help our trees and plants grow. Prep School eco-warriors taught other pupils how to reduce the use of paper towels in school, and thought about food wastage during lessons. In the Senior School, pupils had the chance to attend an interesting debate about the need to balance farming with the environment in Brazil, and welcomed a guest speaker to talk about soil and plants.
“It is always pleasing to know that young people remain so committed and optimistic about this important theme and their awareness and environmental consciousness are wonderfully infectious. I hope that all of us will choose to make at least one small change to our lives and practices this week, with a view to reducing our ecological footprints. If we all make a small difference then collectively, I hope, we can make a significant one”, says Ms Louise Simpson, the Head.
