King's Spreads the Word About Sustainability
Two Lower Sixth Form pupils, Finlay Hayton and Lorcan Cudlip-Cook, spent the morning at Perrott Hill Prep School, near Crewkerne, presenting a lecture to pupils on the importance of sustainability.
Finlay involved the pupils in an interactive and thought-provoking presentation covering issues such as climate change, food waste, water, energy and raising general awareness. Activities included a quiz and the creation of a school ‘eco-code’, as well as showing pupils a series of school videos that we use for assemblies.
The Perrott Hill Pupils were engaged and enthusiastic, asking 20 minutes of questions at the end of the session. Perrott Hill are now eager to go for their own Green Flag award – King’s will gain this distinction soon as well – and to introduce more sustainable practices to the life of the school.
The King’s Sustainability Strategy’s outreach program involves pupils at King’s College sharing sustainability good practice with other prep schools and community groups within the local area. Finlay is looking at arranging future sessions with other schools in the area next term.
