The Year 6 Eco Prefects at Elizabeth College Junior School have launched an initiative to give up single use plastics for Lent (Wednesday 14th February to Thursday 23rd March).
The Junior School heard about the initiative at a special assembly on Monday. The Eco Prefects told pupils why it is a good idea to give up single use plastics and just how damaging they are to our environment.
To hear what the Eco Prefects had to say, please see below for a video of their presentation.
Acting Headteacher Liz Bott said “It’s great to see the passion youngsters have for this issue and particularly powerful for our pupils to hear this information from their peers. They are learning good habits and hopefully passing them on to their families too,”
