This week, the Year 7’s set an excellent example to the rest of the AP2 school community by raising environmental awareness of issues within Vietnam in a number of ways.
They took a ‘bottom-up’ approach to this challenge and in doing so, showed a great degree of collaboration, independence, initiative and enthusiasm.
During form time sessions this week, the Year 7’s have been busy visiting form groups full of older students around school to share their passion for the environmental issue chosen by their form. On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday lunchtimes the students also held their self-designed activities in front of their self-made information boards.
Students of all ages were having great fun pinning the horn on the rhino, completing scavenger hunts, painting, chasing plastic bags and even adding rubbish to a beach-themed art installation. The Year 7’s have really done themselves proud and supported each other throughout the week.
The Year 7 Form Tutors and myself are really proud of them as this was completely driven by them. They have set an excellent example to us all!
