Meat Free Mondays?
As part of our ever-increasing interest in a sustainable future, the students across the school have been finding out more about eating less meat.
As Ms Helen explains below:
Proposed by our Eco Beast Club, STA has moved on to the next stage of becoming a more progressive eco-friendly school. We will be joining an international movement of schools and individuals who have decided to go ‘Meat Free on Monday’ (MFM) This will be trialed on Monday 17 June and Monday 24 June with a view to starting it officially when we return in August. We have been working carefully with our catering company Epicure who fully support this initiative and have developed an exciting range of delicious vegetarian dishes that are high in nutritional value that we are confident the kids will enjoy.
If you would like to find out more about the motivations behind the movement then please join our "Food for Thought' event on Friday 7 June which will be held in the Sports Hall. The Eco Beasts Club have teamed up with both the WWF and experienced nutritionist Cristina Azcarate to present the reasoning behind the MFM campaign and why we feel it would be good for the STA community to support it. The presentation will run 3 times so that everyone has an opportunity to see it. The times are 1.30 - 2.00, 2.30 - 3.00, 3.30 - 4.00. In between the presentations, you will have the opportunity to engage with vendors selling a range of organic and plant-based foods. Our partners are Green Grocer@ Icon Siam, Org box, Patom, Green Vibes, Veggie Crush and Olive Retreat. Green vibes will be giving away simple veggie recipes and running a cooking workshop starting at 2.05 p.m., 3.05 p.m., 4.05 p.m.
