It’s a green day for Che­sham pupils

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOL REPORT -

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!”
