Green Week 2021
In the week before half term, students took part in a number of talks, workshops and challenges as part of our annual Green Week, with each day tackling a different environmental theme: Wicked Waste, Under the Sea, Life on Land, Climate Action, Reflection and Looking Forward.
There were a variety of workshops and seminars run by Sevenoaks School teachers, which explored making your own laundry products, green chemistry, horse logging and more. We also hosted some fantastic guest speakers, including Rosemary Brazel (OS 2009), for her webinar on Careers in Green Engineering, Jane Burston, Executive Director of the Clean Air Fund, for her talk on climate change and air pollution, and Paul Turner (former Sevenoaks teacher), for his webinars on solutions to climate change.
Challenges and activities including encouraging students to consider reducing their waste; to explore the natural world around them by tracking biodiversity through photography; and to upcycle plastic. Our Eco Partnership service group has also been creating resources to help local primary schools with their environmental education.< Back
