Wilmslow pupils spent the day at Alderley Park conference centre last week thinking about the impact of climate change.
Twenty students from Wilmslow High School were joined by pupils from Poynton High, Middlewich High and Knutsford Academy for the launch of Oxfam World Shapers, which is a whole school approach to global citizenship with a strong focus on pupil participation and empowerment.
Students were there to develop an understanding about the human impact of climate change and to be inspired and supported to take action about the important issue.
During the day they took part in a range of activities and sessions which encouraged them to think about climate change and share ideas with each other. At the end of the day each school gave a presentation about the things they had learnt and how they intended to make changes in their lives to protect the things they loved from climate change.
Liz Newbon, Education and Youth Advisor from Oxfam said "Climate change is already having a huge impact on millions of people all over the world, making it an urgent issue to resolve. Friday's event provided a fantastic opportunity for the students to learn and think critically about the human impact of climate change, as well as to consider what action can be taken. A big well done to all the students involved!"
Mr Maw, Head of Norcliffe House, commented, "It was great to see students engage in mature discussions around this global campaign and the impact of climate change with other school councils from partner schools. Having free use of the Conference Centre really made the day for the students."
