Plastic Waste Workshops
Year 7 tutor groups took part in some plastic waste workshops run by a local theatre groups called the OneStep Theatre Company. This was part of the current whole school focus on the local and global environment and links with topics they will study in Year 8 in Geography and Science and the current climate change protests.
The workshops were really interactive and the students enjoyed taking part and learning about the damage plastic waste is causing, and most importantly, what small steps they could take to improve the situation. The pupils finished by suggesting ways they could reduce plastic waste and adding their ideas to a collage which will be displayed around the school soon – hopefully many went home and passed on these idea’
