Yesterday St. Mary’s was visited by a team from the Engineering Development Trust. They watched our films and powerpoints and then they were given a presentation by each ECO group. Our 4 groups focused on: 1. Reducing Litter in the playground 2. Reducing water waste in the school 3. Improving the playground environment for wildlife and 4. Saving energy by reducing heat loss through hot water pipes. Then we had great fun doing a Helideck challenge. Each group was given feedback by the assessors, then finally the Litter is Bitter group were awarded medals for their group’s work- the EDT team particularly liked their innovative models-a playground sweeper-cleaner and a drone litter-detector. We had a really exciting morning and we have learned a lot about Eco issues.
