Geography students tackle Apprentice style task

By Kirsty Layton, Head of Geography

With soaring fuel prices and high levels of energy demand, Block 3 students have been tasked with improving awareness at Bedales. Areas under the spotlight include water and energy conservation, wind turbines and waste levels. Showing initiative, students approached many school services for information. We hear the terms ‘Carbon Neutral’, but what does that really mean to the students here? Eco-housing, water storage tanks, and expanding our bee colonies are all sustainable projects seen worthy of investment. Bring on the Apprentice! The task will continue into a second round after half term with a project being selected and Block 3 to drive it forward.
