Eco-Friendly Pupils Fund COACH Sustainability Project
Last week we were honoured to welcome to school the Club Captain of Taunton Rowing Club, Steve Swan.
Steve met with our Head of the King’s Sustainability Strategy (KSS), Christina French, to discuss the various sustainability measures across the school and to learn how the pupils could get involved in his latest project: a rainwater-harvesting system at Taunton’s Centre for Outdoor Activities & Community Hub (COACH).
This Monday, 12 members of the KSS visited COACH, where they took part in an interactive design workshop and discussed the current sustainability measures in place. During their visit, they also had the opportunity to audit the building and come up with their own strategies and ideas of how the centre could be more sustainable.
Fourth Form pupil Justin Ma made some excellent contributions, pitching alternative ways of building the rainwater system. In the coming weeks, the KSS will work with COACH and Taunton Rowing Club to construct this.
To show our support, we were delighted to donate £500 to help fund the rainwater project and now look forward to working closely with Steve and COACH.
