Last Monday the 29th October (INSET DAY), staff from DKH and RPS met to consider how to make our schools more sustainable. I am sure you all remember the shocking images on David Attenborough’s Blue Planet. The harrowing pictures of the damage to the oceans, bird life and sea life caused by plastic waste led to both political and media concern. Anna Birney, Daisy-May James, parents from DKH and Kellie Ansell, the deputy head from RPS facilitated the whole day event. Staff were shocked by the statistical information presented, highlighting the demands we are making on the earth’s resources.vironment concerns within our curriculum. Increasing the children’s awareness and need to care for their environment, both locally and internationally.
Cleaner air is also a current focus for the Mayor. DKH is situated on a busy junction, with pollution from cars and buses entering the playground.
The River Hill Federation have decided to bid for funding to help us improve the air quality in our playgrounds.
We need your help!
We have put in a bid for funding to help us move to increased sustainability. If you as parents could back us by bidding to support our campaign, we will have a higher chance of being awarded the funding.
