Green Travel Week
Activities by Les Q students give leg-up to RNLI charity too!
by Les Quennevais School

We had a really positive response from our students towards this week, all seemed excited by it and keen to get involved.

Competitions were ran during the week to raise awareness and for the students to take part in. We launched a House Competition which is always good at getting students interested. They always want their House to win! A point system was used to record the methods of travel and there was a large display up to keep students updated of who was in the lead. The Eco-Board and posters, with cool artwork by students, also promoted the Green Travel week.

We had a Photography and Creative Writing Competition too encouraging students to be more aware of their surroundings on their journey to school, as they walk or cycle recording the results either by taking photos or writing about it. We had some amazing entries and there where prizes kindly donated for both competitions by 'Cupcake Heaven'. The cupcakes were beautiful decorated with green designs which the students loved and they also won a WHSmiths voucher.

Our Free Your Feet Competition had a good response and some students walked for over an hour to school during the week - many ditching the car to take part. Students all entered into the spirit of things by coming in non-uniform and wearing green on the Friday morning, which raised money for the RNLI and School Eco fund. Year 7 students came in very early to help decorate the playground and bike shelter with 'Well Done' posters, designed by students, and green balloons.

In the playground we had the School's Steel Band playing and 103 playing out so we could hear what was going on in other schools and listen out for a Les Q' mention from Peter Mac. There were also the electric cars and hybrid car, kindly on loan from the JEC and Derek Warwick which the students loved checking out. Aaron from Jersey Bike Repairs was also there servicing student's bikes, always popular and he had plenty of customers. HSBC supported again by giving out goodie bags and the slap bands that student's love.
