In Secondary this week we have been celebrating Green Week. Our theme has been biodiversity and the students have been researching endangered animals, they enjoyed learning about different species and presenting their ideas to their peers. However the main event of the week was recycling paper. Some KS3 secondary science classes learnt how to recycle paper and went on to teach early years and primary students. The secondary science corridor was filled with an excited buzz throughout the week as the secondary science students taught their younger peers about recycling paper. They learnt that paper is important in our lives but that the process of making paper can damage the environment, in addition they transformed old used paper into beautiful fresh new pieces of paper. I would like to encourage every BIS student to reduce the amount of paper that they use. For example you must never leave empty pages in your class exercise books and try to use scrap paper when you are completing rough work. I would like to say thank you to the secondary science staff and KS3 students that supported me with implementing the 2016 Green Week activities.
