Trip to RHS Garden Wisley
On 5th October, eight students from across Year 9 and Year 10 were invited to attend wildlife workshops delivered by RHS Wisley staff and to consider biodiversity changes they would like to make at TWBS and the local community. All the students made excellent contributions to the day and helped to set apart TWBS as a lead school within the Thames Valley for its efforts to improve the environment.
During the day our students got to hear from well skilled and passionate advocates for wildlife and biodiversity, and got to take part in creating “seed bombs” to help the growth and spread of wild flowers in the local area. The quality of input from the students as they took part in discussing new innovative ideas that they wish to see implemented in the Thames Valley was exceptional. Each student has since been personally invited to produce pieces of art and to write articles to be published in local media that promote the need to improve the biodiversity of the area based on the quality of engagement from our students. The school has also been identified as a community with whom the Thames Valley Learning Partnership would look to invest into the development of biodiversity projects identified and lead by the students.
We all look forward to seeing those developments come to fruition in the coming weeks and months. Well done!
