Just on the train home from a parents meeting facilitated by the FSC. Our department is taking part in the Eco-Schools Challenge. For anyone not familiar with this project I would strongly reconmend reading up!
In October 30 Year 8 students will travel to the FSC’s center Juniper Hall for a 4 day residential. The focus will be on environmenal issues and adventure activities. The project also provides 3 follow up sessions at local areas. For some of our urban dwelling pupils the adventure will be a real eyeopener. Planned activities include shelter building, mountain biking, a river study and team challenges.
The best part: it’s all free. NO cost to either the school or parents.
