Dress up in green and take part to help protect rainforests on Go Green Day, our national day of action.
LLANGORSE SCHOOL ENTERPRISE PROJECT
Size of Wales visited Llangorse Primary School, to run a workshop on tropical forests and climate change. Following Nigel’s visit the eco committee decided they wanted to raise funds to help Size of Wales protect tropical forests because ‘climate change is important’ and ‘Nigel was fun’. They were concerned about animal habitats disappearing and that there are ‘species scientists haven’t even found yet’.
The headteacher gave each of the 85 junior pupils £2 to take part in an enterprise project out of school hours. Each pupil wrote a business plan, taking into account costs and predicted sales. Their creative ideas ranged from washing cars and sponsored walks to making cakes, bookmarks and pencil cases.
HOW MUCH DID THEY RAISE?
At the end of the allotted time, £2 was returned and the profits were counted by the eco club. Pupils had raised an amazing £1,678.05! Even better, the amount will be doubled by our funders to bring it up to £3,356.10, enabling us to help protect even more tropical forests.
THANK YOU LLANGORSE SCHOOL!
