What will we achieve this year?

Welcome back for 2017 - 18!

Just last week we heard the sad news that by 2050 it is predicted there will be more plastic in the Oceans than fish. This shocking news, plus the environmental disasters we have seen recently such as hurricanes in Africa and USA and flooding in India and USA, makes us think that here at Oak House we should be doing all we can to be a part of the solution to create a better environment here, to think about the effects of our actions on the wider environment, create a stronger community and continue to take part in campaigns at an international level.

Last year we saw that with a bit of effort we can reduce our energy use, our paper use... can we reduce our use of plastic? We also started the gardening project on the roof and we have the chance to to create more gardens there, and around the school. The school community was encouraged to think about their meat consumption (an industry which causes a lot of pollution... and we all know that eating less meat is healthier!) and there are many potential projects.. we just need you to get involved!!

Please get in touch with Miss Gurney if you would like to take on or suggest a project for this year!
