In the last week of term, Truro School pupils across the years took part in two days of challenges on the theme of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
The day saw pupils take part in 5 challenges:
Challenge 1 – Dens and Flags with the Eden Project; all about forming communities and working together to survive
Challenge 2 – Scrap Band with the Music Department; ‘making a rhythm with random bits of junk’
Challenge 3 – Plastics, Biofuel and Shark Fins; talking about recycling schemes to save marine wildlife and a petition to ban the selling of shark fins with Fin Fighters UK
Challenge 4 – Seagull Resistant Bins with the Art Department; combatting the problem of seagulls on the campus by reusing material
Challenge 5 – Floating Gardens with the Biology Department; thinking of innovative new technologies to combat flooding caused by climate change and growing food in a new and dynamic way
Rev. Aubin said: “We can make a difference and we should make a difference. It’s our responsibility to do something and these days are all about proving that you can achieve change with some will power and determination. It’s also a great way to end the term.”
