8S get practical as part of Ulster Wildlife’s ‘Action for Environment and Society’

As one of four schools trialling Ulster Wildlife’s ‘Action for Environment and Society’, the pupils of 8S English are completing a series of tasks in four modules.  Already we have done research, presented the findings in a speech, made a poster focusing on colour, picture, lay out and text and next week we will be visited by former pupil  Neal Warnock of the RSPB to talk about his work and how to pursue a career in the environmental sector.

Last week we decided to get practical. Armed with litter pickers-or ‘grabby things’ as we like to call them- we searched the grounds for litter and also picked up litter from our boundary on the street as behoves anyone with a community spirit.  I suppose it’s what David Cameron meant by the ‘Big Society’.

It was cold but bright and we all enjoyed getting out of the classroom and making a difference.  As you can see from the pictures we found quite a lot of stuff!  While the vast majority of our pupils are good at putting their papers and bottles in the bin, a small percentage still litter the grounds. And it’s a sad fact that in Northern Ireland litter is still a massive problem.

When the pupils returned class they composed 'tweets' to describe their experience. A selection of these can be seen below.
