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!
The day commenced with each school set up an Eco tabletop display and each school did presentations demonstrating their Eco friendly initiatives.
The day included a visit to the Caterpillar Visitors Centre, where everyone was able to sit in and on all the great Caterpillar machinery!
The children were also treated to a session of learning and fun delivered in the shape of ‘Rainforest Man’.
The day with a presentation where everyone received a goody bag and certificate and the school received a trophy and cheque for £250 to help us become more eco friendly and sustainable!
There will be some official photographs over the next week or so, but a big thanks to Miss Chetwynd and Mr Chadwick who took these photos and helped our wonderful pupils have such a great day!
