On Monday 16th December the Green Schools Committee along with our local travel officer conducted a walkability audit of the local area. We looked at the condition of footpaths, roads, accessability for wheelchair users, the safety aspect if children choose to walk or cycle to school and we also measured the speed of traffic using a speed gun on the road outside our school.
Today three members of The Green School’s Committee were presented with our third green flag for water conservation on behalf of the whole school at a ceremony in The Radisson Blu Hotel, Little Island.
Today Mrs. Pam Wood came and gave a presentation to the children on the Oltiasika Water Tanks Project in the Diocese of Kajiado in Kenya. The money raised from our walk with water is being used in the refurbishment of these tanks to ensure clean water storage for the Maasai.
Today to link in with Active Week all classes participated in a Walk for Water to raise awareness of water shortages in certain parts of the world. The children carried water to highlight and experience the journey travelled every day by women and children to access clean water. The money raised will be donated to a C.M.S. project in Kajiado, Kenya.
