Eco Projects – Year 8 showcase their ideas to Governors
On Thursday our fabulous Year 8 students attended a Governors Meeting to talk about the learning they have been doing during Tutor Time on Eco Friendly Building Design. Year 8 have been making the most of their Tutor Time activities by working independently as a team to research building design and ecological issues. The students brought in 3D models of their classroom / school building design with composters, solar panels, wind turbines and other ecologic features. The Chair of Governors, Paul Leslie, thanked the girls for their thoughtful presentations and asked them to think about how to get their suggestions heard and acted upon particularly with the issue of recycling and reducing food-waste. Well done to all Year 8, Year 8 Tutors and Ms Cornwall, Ms Emerson and Mr Begley.
