Representatives from the Student Council were invited to attend a ceremony to celebrate Commonwealth Day by Ryde Town Council on Monday 13th March.
Readings were given by Cannon Graham Morris, the Deputy Lord Lieutenant, Chairman of the Council and Ryde Mayor and the ceremony ended when students read the Commonwealth affirmation.
The minutes from the November meeting are now available.
As you know, our Student Council Eco-Warriors had been auditing departments to check that they were doing their bit for the environment by switching off electrical devices when they were not being used.
Thank you to everyone who has supported the Eco-Warrior spot checks over the last term, and for those who made a conscious effort to switch off their laptops etc in an attempt to be the greenest department in the Academy in terms of electricity usage. Each department (or combination of departments) started with 100 points and lost 5 points for each item they had switched on and unmanned during the spot checks.
The final checks have now been completed by the School Council Eco-Warriors and the results are in....................
1st place PE with 95 points (you did not lose a point on the last two spot checks.....well done!)
Our Student Council Eco-Warriors have been auditing departments to check that they are doing their bit for the environment by switching off electrical devices when they are not being used. Each department started off with 100 points which are deducted for every electrical device left on and unused.
The results so far are:
There are two more rounds to go before the winning department is announced.
Well done to the Student Council for their work on this.
Against this backdrop of reduced energy consumption nationwide, the School Council Eco Warriors are on a mission to do their bit for the environment. They will be checking areas around the Academy to see if staff are doing their bit! All departments will start with 100 points and points will be deducted for each electrical device left on and unused in that department. Scores will be updated each half term. So as we enter into those hazy days of summer, where the warmth of the sun is the only energy we need, tune in, switch off and strive to reach the moral high ground of being the greenest department in the Academy.
All our opinions matter so if anything concerns you, just tell one of us and we will bring it up at our meetings.
