Sustainability Club Update

We're pleased to be able to bring some updates from the Sustainability Club which has been running this year and is attended by students from all year groups.

Earlier this term, students dispersed wildflower seeds on the roundabout in the middle of the bus bay.

Seeds were obtained from the BBC's Green Planet documentary series late last year, where schools could sign up to receive some free seeds for their site.

Richard from the site team scarified the ground in advance to prepare it, then the students scattered the seeds, which were then rolled to embed them into the soil. We are now starting to see some growth and look forward to enjoying a show of wild flowers.

The sustainability garden is also coming along nicely.  Jamie Rogers and Alfie Griffiths have made a lovely wooden sign which is now hanging up.

The bug hotels made by year 7, 8 and 9 students are also in the garden and are open for business.

The next project is to monitor the school's recycling to look at what is in our Green Bins and check where this goes.

Thanks to Miss Brayne and Mrs Avery for co-ordinating all of these brilliant projects.
