Our pupils and staff are getting right behind Abingdon School’s Eco-Week which started yesterday and will run through until this Friday 6 May.

Led by students from the School’s Eco Committee, initiatives include reducing food waste; recycling empty pill packets; reducing carbon miles and reducing energy usage; as well as considering opting for plant-rich dish alternatives.

Day one culminated in an Eco Forum, organised by Abingdon School in Partnership, where students from Abingdon, John Mason School, Radley and St Helen and St Katharine came together to brainstorm ideas which their own schools could adopt in order to ensure environmental excellence in the following areas: education and student experience; engagement and leadership; biodiversity and the built environment; marine and water; energy; waste; healthy living; and transport. The theme of ‘Think Big-Act Local’ will result in the creation of a manifesto which will be presented this Friday to MP David Johnston OBE (who himself will be hosting the second Wantage and Didcot Climate Summit in June with COP President Alok Sharma in attendance) at an Eco debate hosted in Abingdon’s Amey Theatre on Friday 6 May.
