Hampton Col­lege

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

HAN­NAH Church from Year 9 wrote a piece about what her school does to be ‘“eco bril­liant”, and how pupils at the school had the chance to go to Spain or Ger­many as part of a project which looks at green is­sues in those two coun­tries, as well as in Eng­land.

Han­nah said: “I had the op­por­tu­nity to visit San­ti­ago de Com­postela in Spain and I stayed there for three nights with a Span­ish stu­dent called Uxia.

“One of the green is­sues that they were work­ing on was the op­por­tu­nity to hire a re­cy­cled bike for a very small amount of money so that peo­ple could en­joy a ride in the coun­try.

“The money raised through this scheme went to­wards re­cy­cling more bikes.

“An­other green is­sue that they have achieved was plac­ing wind tur­bines on top of hills around the coun­try – putting the wind tur­bines there they would catch the wind and cre­ate more en­ergy.

“They had so­lar pan­els on top of park­ing ma­chines to gen­er­ate elec­tric­ity.

“The next part of the Come­nius project is Uxia com­ing over to Eng­land to have a look at some of our green is­sues. So far our school has man­aged to get re­cy­cling bins in ev­ery class­room, two stu­dents have man­aged to make a game about cli­mate change and be­ing eco friendly, which has been sent to many schools around Peter­bor­ough, we have set up a class­room mon­i­tor­ing scheme, and have done many lit­ter picks around Hampton.

“We look for­ward to show­ing the other for­eign stu­dents what we have achieved.”
