Our Environment Editor, Jack, 15, is newly crowned Head Boy at the brilliant Worle Community School Academy, is taking his fellow eco students into primary schools to set up green teams.
The high-flying Academy is working with primary schools across Weston-super-Mare and Worle in Somerset to inspire future Greta Thunbergs and set up ‘Green Teams’ to help the community and environment.
The first schools to sign up to the scheme are St Anne’s Church Academy and Castle Batch Primary School Academy.
Castle Batch Pupil Katy Adams, 8, pictured in green in above photo centre right, won the school’s ‘Heroes’ Award after organising litter picks in her community. St Anne’s pupils are pictured preparing for their Green Team partnership.
Jack has continued to lead 20 students in the Climate Justice Revolution Group he set up even during the COVID-19 lockdown, driving ahead with his eco-plans.
Principal Jacqui Scott said: “Jack is quite simply sensational. His work for the last four years has been inspirational and he has a glittering future ahead of him. He is a leading young figure making huge changes to the environment at WCSA. We look forward to working with primary schools on this.”
During lockdown Jack became the founding editor of the school’s Green Gazette, and has now just won an award from the Global Goals competition.
He was also part of the team which won an award for environmentally friendly travel earlier this year.
Now he has been made Head Boy at WCSA after a fantastic four years at the high achieving and caring academy.
