You may recall that the hard work and enthusiasm of our BCS Pre-Prep and Prep Eco-Committees helped us to achieve the Eco Schools Green Flag Award last term.

In another exciting development Ria in Year 5, who is a member of the Prep Eco Committee has been chosen as the winner of a ‘Save Our Oceans Award’ in a local Environmental competition!

Ria designed a poster highlighting the problem of plastic pollution and entered it in a Plastic Pollution Poster Competition for Under 16s, run by the Lloyds Banking Group Centre for Responsible Businesses and Festival of Social Sciences in conjunction with the University of Birmingham.

There were many fantastic entries but Ria’s design caught the attention of the judges and she received a prize of some Waterstone vouchers as a reward for her hard work and as a thank you for bringing attention to the dangers of plastic pollution. Well done Ria!
