School Examples

Catherine Junior School

The Eco-Committee at Catherine Junior school decided that they were going to make Clean Air Day 2019 extra special by working with (the fantastic) Leicester City Council to close the road outside their school for the day in an action that combined Curriculum Links and Informing and Involving perfectly! The Committee worked tirelessly with their Eco-Coordinator and Leicester City Council to organise closing the road for the day and their Clean Air Day was a fantastic success.
Staff members and children either cycled or 'parked 'n' strided' to school and throughout the day lessons were held on the street, races were run and games were played. Every child was beaming and the school's neighbours even opened their doors to join in the activities. This has helped the school to build on their relationships with the local community. The day was so spectacular it even featured on regional television, radio and in local newspapers!
