Green Day – Taking Action Against Climate Change

In solidarity with the climate change protest movement that is currently sweeping across cities around the school, Senior School and Prep School came together on Friday 15 March to hold Green Day. In assembly, pupils from both parts of the Prep School shared their thoughts and feeling about this highly topical and emotive subject. Inspired by Kiko Matthew’s KIKPLASTIC initiative to raise awareness about the dangers posed by single use plastics and the urgency to clean up our shoreline, we collected money for her plan to cycle the perimeter of the UK this spring. Following the Prep School’s ‘protest prep’ pop-up yesterday lunchtime, we also took to the street to peacefully protest on Westwood Hill and spread the word to passers-by.

Tthe work of our Eco Warriors last term to create an awareness-raising music video on the same theme and it was a real pleasure to launch the finished article to pupils and staff today. Entitled the Earth Song, it will be distributed to positively influence to make changes to their lives and, in turn, our environment.
