We are delighted to announce that QEII won a Gold Award at the ‘Roots and Shoots’ Awards Ceremony at the Barbican last Thursday for their work to help the environment and raise awareness of environmental issues!
This is an amazing achievement as only 11 out of 2,000 schools received this award. Many thanks goes to the 2017/2018 Eco Committee for their hard work and for coming up with the idea of exploring the problems of plastic through dance. Year 13 student, Rachel Smith, collected the award on behalf of the School and Eco Committee.
Our dancers were invited to perform their ‘plastic awareness dance’, choreographed by Miss Wainwright, at the prestigious awards ceremony and were a credit to the School! They were delighted to be able to attend the ceremony and were honoured to be able to speak to and perform in front of Dr Jane Goodall, the founder of the Roots and Shoots Awards.
Our Year 11 student, Reuben Allan, was also shortlisted for the ‘Most Outstanding Environmental Photograph’ for his incredible photograph 'Circle of Fire', taken in 2018 at Niarbyl.
Very well done to everyone involved!
