A few weeks ago, MDJS sent a team of pupils and some staff to the Neovia Logistics Eco Day. We had had to apply to be part of the day by sending in an application, explaining all we do in school on an eco theme….. and there is quite a lot!

A selection of schools are then chosen to be part of a days full of editing events at the Caterpillar Cmetre in Desford.  Neovia Logistics, pride themselves in being Eco friendly. Every year they run a Schools Eco day where they ask schools to bring along pupils who are involved in making their school Eco friendly and sustainable. This year the event was  held on Tuesday, 23rd June. WildlifeKate really want to be part of the day, but she was in Shetland running a wildlife tour, so Miss Chetwynd and Mr Chadwick took a selection of pupils who have worked really hard all year!
