Awareness of Environmental Issues

We were delighted to welcome back former student Rebecca Moore who delivered a powerful and engaging assembly to our Year 12 students on microplastics in the ocean, which was the topic of her University of Cumbria dissertation.  The assembly was very informative and included a prize (a bamboo reusable mug) for the correct answer to a quiz question at the end. 

Rebecca studied Psychology, Sociology and Religious Studies at A Level, before going on to study Marine Biology at the University of Cumbria.  She has since been promoting awareness of environmental issues in schools and on local radio. 

Students in our Sixth Form Eco-club are excited to promote her ideas around school this term.    One of the things they are going to be organising is  a school litter pick-nic at the beginning of October.
