World Earth Day: Why the pandemic has given students pause for thought

For World Earth Day, Margaret Perry, chair of the eco committee at Claremont School in East Sussex, explains why when it comes to green initiatives, the pandemic has given pupils real pause for thought
With today being World Earth Day, it feels like the perfect moment to stop and consider the unexpected, positive impacts that Covid-19 has had on our environment. In pursuit of Green Flag Status, we also reflect on what we, as a school, had achieved before anyone had uttered the word ?pandemic?.
At the beginning of the year, inspired by Greta?s work and remarkable address at the UN summit last September, pupils from years seven and eight decided to launch the Claremont Eco Store and what we believe is one, if not the first of its kind in a school. Having persuaded national suppliers to part with eco-friendly products at wholesale prices, to include shampoo, soap bars, reusable straws and bamboo ?truthbrushes?, the children quickly built a loyal customer base of parents and friends, returning each week to refill their bottles and try out new products.
Working with charity, the children used their profits to ?plant? trees in areas of the world most in need, and less than two months later, over 225 trees were donated to Kenya and then Australia to help the landscape recover from the bushfires that wiped over 20 per cent of the country?s broadleaf forests off the planet.
As we clapped for the NHS, the motorways emptied and planes were grounded. Nature healed and we reconnected with it on our daily walks
Meanwhile, eco warrior pupils up and down the school continued to drive their own initiatives to empower the community to play their part in safeguarding the environment.

With cross-curricular opportunities aplenty, eco issues were addressed in science, art, maths and even French, where a residential trip included a visit to the Nausicaa Sealife Centre in Boulogne and the chance to learn more about the problem of plastic pollution in our oceans.
Older pupils researched the world of Fairtrade as part of their geography curriculum before hosting their own all-school assembly. Global citizenship was highlighted during Fairtrade Fortnight, when the whole school took part in the 90kg Rice Challenge to show solidarity with rice farmers in Malawi, enabling them to afford secondary schooling for their children.

Beach cleans at Hastings, working with the Marine Conservation Society and litter picks around the school grounds became a regular part of Warrior Work, while our Switch Off Week encouraged everyone to turn off unused electrical appliances at home, as well as in school. Recycling of paper, card and plastic continued throughout the year with parents regularly contributing to the children?s battery recycling station, and the school dining room became a focus of eco activity ahead of The Great British Spring Clean in March.
By Easter, having recently earned the school its official BBC Reporter School status, children from the Newspape...
