Community Events

Each year, our 6th Form students link with their Farnborough 6th Form peers to produce a show loosely based on a musical – this year, it was to be Frozen. However, due to COVID 19, the show has been postponed indefinitely; however, the students at Farnborough have produced this short video showing off the huge amount of fun that goes into rehearsals.

SAVE OUR OCEANS - FIGHT PLASTIC POLLUTION!

Green Group have been working hard to create a totem pole which reflects the need to reduce plastic waste and save our oceans! We made this jellyfish using plastic rubbish, an umbrella, a drain pipe, string, stones, sand and a flower pot.

We shrunk crisp packets in the oven and then threaded them onto our umbrella to create the tentacles. We also covered plastic bottles with plastic waste and threaded them too.

Recycling: Green Group sorted out the materials they would use during our recycling lessons.

DEFORESTATION FROM TEA PLANTATIONS

We were invited to create an art installation with other Hampshire schools and their communities to communicate our message and to raise awareness about climate change and environmental issues. The piece will be called ‘Our Climate Change Forest’ and feature in the grounds of Winchester Cathedral.

The messages will be about pressing environmental topics, from deforestation, carbon emissions, to air pollution and plastic production etc. The installation will feature QR codes that passers-by can scan to access information explaining the meaning behind each school’s sculpture and their work in developing their understanding of our individual responsibility to global issues. It will also refer to Hampshire County Council’s thoughts about the Climate Crisis.

In our class, we looked at how environmental issues are affecting our world. For air pollution we made ‘smog in a jar’ to see how bad it is for all living things, for water pollution we discovered how hard it is to clean dirt and rubbish from water, and in a deforestation experiment we found out how hard it is to live without vegetation. As a result of these experiments, we decided to design our totem pole around the deforestation crisis.

With further studies, we were shocked to find that a primary contributor of deforestation is tea plantations. In India especially, thousands of acres of forests have been cut down to make room for profitable tea plantations. Tea production has a negative impact on the environment. Our Totem Pole is made in the theme of the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.
