As part of the school’s response to highlight and promote the issue of climate change, the Geography department has decided to take part in a David Attenborough-WWF online challenge through Netflix (not endorsed by Netflix).
Our school will therefore be holding a screening of Sir David Attenborough’s newest film A Life On Our Planet next Thursday, December 10. Students will join in after school on Microsoft Teams for a 4:10pm screening of the film, then a discussion afterwards: those who attend will collaborate with the geography department and other students to prepare a manifesto for change - an action plan for how to implement change in the school community to restore and protect nature. This will then be sent to the Attenborough film company as the school’s submission for the challenge.
During his 93 years, Sir Attenborough has visited every continent on the planet, exploring and documenting the world in all its variety and wonder. However during his life, he has also witnessed the scale of humanity’s impact on the Earth, and this documentary is his testament.
Through student collaboration and support, we can help to drive the action needed for building a better future for ourselves, and for the rest of the planet.
This is a fantastic chance for students to share their ideas and solutions to tackle one of the greatest challenges our world is facing today. Those who wish their voices to be heard and have great ideas to express should come and take part! All students from years 7-13 are welcome. Please sign up for the screening via the newsletter dispatched earlier to all students and their families this week.
“I want to let you know that you can make a difference to the future of our planet. We all have an important role to play in building a better future, and using your voice is the most powerful way to create lasting change.” -Sir David Attenborough
