WIRRAL ECO SCHOOLS CONVENTION

We were delighted to host this exciting event which was held for the first time ever on Wednesday 4th July. Since Lynn Struve, Wirral Eco Schools Officer, approached school about it back in October, the Eco Convention Team of 10 Year 8 pupils had been busy meeting with her regularly to plan the event, design the logo, organise the programme and sort out job roles.

The event was a great success, with over 250 pupils, teachers, workshop providers and council employees.

The day was launched with a fantastic song composed and performed by Esme and Cameron. It moved some members of the audience to tears, and many people have asked for a CD of it so they can hear it again. There were then presentations by 8 different schools about their wonderful environmental projects and an Eco Song competition of a very high standard.

Pupils split into smaller groups for workshops such as Mr Bike It, den-build and Eco Poetry.

The last event was the awarding of the Eco prizes. We were delighted to receive the Biodiversity Award.
