World Earth Day marked by Dickleburgh school in style
Staff and pupils at Dickleburgh Primary Academy put in a special effort to mark World Earth Day on Thursday.
The pupils went to school dressed in blue and green and were involved in a number of activities throughout the day, including learning about the Earth in their French class, planting sunflower seeds and designing posters to promote keeping our planet safe for the future.
The highlight of the day was attempting to make a collage of the world, using the pupils as the blue seas and green land.
Headteacher Moira Croskell said: “We shared our World Earth Day story on our school Facebook page and tagged in a company called Majority, which agreed to plant 1,000 trees across the globe in our school’s name.
“We were made aware of Majority and its desire to reduce its carbon footprint and support protection of the rainforests when we were looking for resources to use in school on World Earth Day.
“The children and parents are delighted that we have been able to help make a difference to our planet.”
The school is part of St Benet’s Multi Academy Trust.
