With the conclusion of COP28 the previous day, our Open Spaces ‘Christmas Eco Fair’ was well-timed. The hall was turned green with an array of environmental organisations and stalls. During afternoon lessons, Years 7 and 9 students came along to learn how our actions impact on biodiversity, habitats and climate, but everyone can make a difference in protecting the environment. With plenty of interactive activities and cake on offer too, parents and families were welcome to attend after school.
We are very grateful to all the exhibitors who came along and shared their enthusiasm and knowledge – Cumbria Wildlife Trust, Cumbria Development Education Centre (CDEC), Brampton2Zero, Fellfoot Forward Project, Sustainable Brampton, Brampton Fair Trade, The Co-operative Brampton, Urban Village Retro (upcycling crafts), and local spinners.
Our Open Spaces Lead, Mrs Booker said: “Environmental education is one of the most important life skills for our WHS children. I was especially proud that there were three generations of us there to support Open Spaces.”
Well done to Mrs Booker for organising the event, and her fantastic Open Spaces team, along with Sixth Formers, for helping out.
