Eco-School Celebration

5 representatives from the school's Eco-Team were selected to attend the Leeds Eco-Schools Celebration Event at Leeds Civic Hall, on Wednesday 17th July. 

It was a high profile event reflected in the attendance of the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress, senior councillors, council officers and Tom Riordan, Chief Executive of Leeds City Council.

As the only secondary school in attendance, our students took a leading role and were there to showcase the school’s good sustainability practice and outline our main priorities for the year ahead. Accompanied by Mr Cox and Miss Bolton, students Natasha Meek, David Gaughan, Kieron Parratt and Owen Sheldon presented our targets for the future which include encouraging walking to school, starting a composting initiative and raising support for an allotment.

Students were then involved in a ballott where they were given the opportunity to vote for their preferred city wide green scheme. Finally Joel Smith was bestowed the task of publically addressing Councillor Judith Blake (Executive member for Children’s Services) to agree to advocate on behalf of the children and young people the top 3 priorities as voted for on the day.
