Green Team update

Last term, we received a fantastic response to the Switch-off Fortnight competition with 15 forms managing to win some delicious prizes. 

We were really impressed by all of your efforts and we hope that moving forward into the new half term; we can maintain this positive momentum as we focus now on improving biodiversity around the school.

As a community, it is important to recognise the significant role biodiversity plays in the environment and believe that Warwick School by working together can help to protect some of the eco-systems that are most at risk. In fact, a recent study by the Nature Communications has shown high percentages of species in the UK are at risk of declining populations such as Hedgehogs, hoverflies, moths and birds.

Despite being a global issue we believe that Warwick School must take responsibility to ensure the protection of the biodiversity in the surroundings areas in order to prevent further decline of high risk species. This half-term we will be holding a new competition with the aim to protect the local bird species in Warwickshire to promote the green status of the school and to foster cohesion between forms. Over the next week, every student with be issued with birdfeeder fat balls and will be asked to take them home and hang them in their gardens. We will ask students to take a photo of the birdfeeder and email their responses!
