It’s a green day for Chesham pupils
CHILDREN celebrated all things green when they took part in an environmental day. Four schools took part in Chesham Schools Green Day on Wednesday, May 20 when pupils enjoyed a range of activities to celebrate everything green and what they are doing to be more sustainable.
This is the third year the event, organised by Michele Blackmore from Elmtree School, has run.
Schools taking part included Elmtree School, Thomas Harding School, Chartridge School and Chiltern Hills Academy.
Chesham’s mayor Peter Hudson visited all the schools taking part throughout the day and also helped pupils from Chiltern Hills Academy litter pick in Lowndes Park.
Specialist teacher at Elmtree School Emma Choules said: “What a great day! It was so fantastic to see the children working enthusiastically, without pressure of a finished product, working as a team, enjoying being outside, learning about green issues without knowing about it, working with people from the wider community, involving lots of parents and most of all to be loving their day. That must be what education is about!”
