The Worth Environment Society, currently comprised of 11 students, is involved with a number of projects with the aim of making realistic but positive change at the School.
The two major campaigns they are currently focusing on are reducing plastic waste at the School and holding zero waste bake sales to raise both funds and awareness, with all money raised put into projects.
In terms of reducing plastic waste, the group are trying to have recycling bins introduced around the school including one in every classroom. The plans have been approved and the project is making good progress.
Other projects are in the pipeline, including a conservation garden, while a poster campaign at the School highlights their work and the Society is also working with the Worth Parish environment society.
The excellent work these students are doing fulfils one of the School’s six values, ‘Leadership – leave it better than you found it’.
The group would like to welcome more students who are invited to get involved with specific projects or even to propose projects of their own. Each project is led by a student, with each project leader reporting back on projects.
One member of the Society said: “It is our school and we have to look after it. It is our responsibility to be stewards of the earth and to take care of it. It is our common home.”
Well done to all students in the Society for the work they are doing.
