Host of activities planned as part of Green Week

Rydal Penrhos will be doing its bit for the environment thanks to an upcoming initiative.

The school will be holding a Green Week to raise awareness of climate change and to raise funds for a charitable cause related to the topic.

The events will begin with Meat Free Monday, where pupils and staff are invited to go throughout the day without eating any meat products.

Tuesday will see a special Art Competition take place during lunch, where groups will come up with environmentally friendly creations using only recycled products.

This will be followed on Wednesday by a screening of Blue Planet, with the critically acclaimed series narrated by the voice of Sir David Attenborough, which led to government legislation looking to tackle the issue of plastic in the ocean following disturbing images of wildlife tangled up in products.

The week will close out with a cake sale on Friday, while the Rydal Penrhos community can also come to school wearing green for a small donation.

Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “This is just one of a number of charity days that we hold throughout the academic year, and there is no more worthy cause than that of the environment.

“Our pupils are fully aware of the implications of climate change and how it could affect their future, and they are always very involved when it comes to organising events such as this."
