Earth Day Celebrated From Afar by the Hurlingham Academy

Despite the temporary school closures, students and staff at The Hurlingham Academy took the opportunity to celebrate Earth Day as a whole school community last Wednesday.

Earth Day is a global initiative that encourages people to think about how they can have a positive impact on the world around them and protect it for future generations.  This year's theme in particular - marking 50 years since the first of these celebrations was held - is climate action.

Led by The Hurlingham Academy's Geography and Science Departments, students and staff were therefore encouraged to make special pledges for how they will continue to value and respect the planet and its natural resources.  Most importantly, they were challenged to do so in the most creative way they could imagine - with some diverse and thoughtful responses!

Leon Wilson, Principal of The Hurlingham Academy, said:
"It seemed particularly fitting this year that we celebrate Earth Day and recognise the value of our homes, communities and the amazing world around us - and how we can each play our part to protect it.  As a school, it was wonderful to be able to share our pledges and jointly commit to doing something each day that will make the world a better place.  Alongside academic excellence, we have always strived to deliver an Education with Character - one that challenges and inspires our students to be the best versions of themselves.  The benefits of this, particularly at times like these, are clear as our students continue to dedicate themselves to their home learning and show incredible resilience."
