Sustainability 101 workshop for Grades 9 & 10
Holroyd Howe’s Sustainability Coordination, Anna Johnson, visited our grade 9 and grade 10 pupils today to conduct a workshop on Sustainability 101 – focusing on the importance of reducing food waste and plastic pollution. The pupils came up with some great suggestions for how they could help reduce food waste whilst tasting some amazing food samples made from unused and leftover ingredients.
Anna, herself, has a background in environmental sciences, with a master’s degree in environmental management. She supports the catering company by educating pupils on a wide range of sustainability topics and supports our catering team in reducing energy use and being more sustainable in their day-to-day operations.
Following the workshop, there was very positive feedback from students -
Federica in G10 - "I had the opportunity to learn about environmental sustainability on Monday. Learning about sustainability and the best materials for a better ecosystem was a great experience. For instance, plastic can be recycled several times, therefore recycling can help the environment. Learning how to preserve our environment for future generations was a wonderful experience. "
Aaron in G10 - "I liked the sustainability workshop overall because we could learn a lot about food waste. We were able to gain better knowledge about recycling and also composting. Personally, now I know that food waste has a very big impact on the world and on living beings. That is why we have to take as much food as we can eat and recycle or compost them if we have the opportunity to do that. I think it was good that we had the opportunity to listen to that presentation and we could gain that important knowledge.
