Year 7 students: Our first eco warriors!
Alton’s first ever Eco-Fair took place on Sunday 11 July in the Public Gardens. There was something for everyone: live music; talks on nature and the environment; a re-use, recycle and repair area; community and wildlife groups; an art and ideas tent; electric cars, and eco-friendly refreshments.
Some really creative things on display came under the heading 'sculpture from waste'.
Year 7 students Honey, Lottie, Micah and Eve gave up many breaks and lunchtimes to create their amazing fish sculpture made from plastic bottles and carrier bags; things that would otherwise have ended up in recycling or landfill.
The fish made a bold statement. The caption on it said, "Stop Pollution, Start a Revolution" in the hope it would encourage the audience to rethink their daily choices: To reuse items rather than throw them out and add to growing environmental pollution.
Our first eco warriors! Great work!
And this year's cup winners were Monty House! Go Monty! The cheers could be heard throughout the school, probably throughout Hampshire And if you're Spenser or Austen.... it all starts again in September. #WeAreEggars https://t.co/11g4SYM8Hi 10:47 AM - 23 Jul 2021
