Ruby Attends Children’s Parliament As Part Of COP26

We offer our congratulations to Ruby who was nominated to participate in the Children’s Parliament as part of the lead up to COP26 on Friday 28th October. Ruby is keenly interested in politics and, as a passionate environmental campaigner, is also a member of our Eco Committee. She was nominated to sit as the member for North Ipswich and Mid Suffolk (the seat currently held by Dr Daniel Poulter MP). The event was due to be hosted by Sir David Ames MP, so started with a tribute to his work helping establish the Children’s Parliament. An introduction was also made by both Prime Minister Johnson, and the Speaker of the House of Commons Sir Lindsay Hoyle. The formal debate was wide-ranging and the contributions made by the members (who ranged in age from 7 to 13) were extremely informed, passionate and impressive. A vote was taken on which issues were the most pressing for young people and the Parliament voted that the need to reduce the use of carbon was their prime concern – this will now be relayed to representatives attending the Climate Change Conference in Glasgow at COP26.

Well done Ruby. 

A message from Y4 Eco Group

In order to be more environmentally friendly, we would like to reduce waste.
If you KEEP your old water bottle in September, you will receive 3 bonus house points!

If you KEEP your old lunchbox, you will also receive 3 bonus house points!
If you and your family would rather buy new ones, that is fine, although the extra house points are for children who KEEP THEIR OLD ONES.

We have also twinned 3 toilets, 2 in Honduras and 1 in Indonesia! Thank you for the money. We appreciate it!

Operation Ocelot – thank you Hannah from WORLD LAND TRUST for giving us a meeting today! We are the first school to know about Operation Ocelot! Do you want to help WORLD LAND TRUST? Well you can give change in to WORLD LAND TRUST to help them to plant more trees and protect more acres.
