Preparatory School eco-warriors highlighted the importance of a nationwide campaign to the youngest members of the Rydal Penrhos community.
The school’s Eco Committee held a special assembly for the Pre-Prep group on Monday, March 25, which was held as part of a number of initiatives for Waste Week.
During the event, the committee highlighted the problem of waste from our homes and the problem of plastic pollution in the sea and on the beach.
As part of Waste Week, the children in Pre-Prep also concentrated on reducing the amount of waste at lunchtime by ensuring that they eat all of the food on their plates.
Teacher and Eco Committee head Julie Woodthorpe, said: “It has been great to see their enthusiasm and thanks to the lunchtime staff, we will be continuing to monitor the waste until Easter.”
This is the latest of a series of activities surrounding the environment and climate change, with Year 6 recently lending their support to Earth Hour, which took place on Saturday, March 30.
They created a special poster that was posted in Rydal Penrhos’ Facebook and Twitter accounts, encouraging others to join in with the global scheme and turn off all their lights and electrical appliances for one hour.
Prep School Head Alison Hind, said: “Our Eco Committee are doing so much good throughout our wonderful facility here at Rydal Penrhos, which is a testament to their desire to make the school and the world in general better and more energy efficient place so it is protected for future generations.”
