Primary School Teacher and Eco Coorindator Passionate about helping schools and their pupils to become Eco Ambassadors
I am a teacher and Eco Coordinator at a First School in Dorchester, Dorset, UK where I have built up the eco work over the last 10 years from a blank canvas. I have helped the school to achieve the Eco Schools Green Flag three times in 2016, 2018, 2020. In 2019 we were Eco Schools Primary Eco School of the Year, Surfers Against Sewage Plastic Free Schools Champion and Jane Goodall Roots and Shoots Best Educational Instition we will keep until 2021. With the help of volunteers I started a school garden from scratch. The school gained RHS 5* status in 2017. For three years running the school won the Young Enterprise Fiver Challenge with their environmentally friendly raising a total of £7500 in the process which was used to fund a nature area with pond and a giant solar powered stopwatch for the playground. I started the Plastic Free Dorchester campaign with the Damers children who have made the school single use plastic free and helped the town to achieve Surfers Against Sewage Plastic Free Community Status in July 2019. The children and I took our “All in” Deposit Return Campaign to Westminster with CPRE and met former Secretary of State for the Environment Michael Gove and the children appeared on Newsround. https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/47404939Why do you want to be a part of the HundrED Community?
