At the whole school assembly on Thursday one class presented an item on World Environment Day and explained how Three Kings School was going to celebrate it.
On Friday everyone wore something green to school
Some people even painted their faces green and coloured their hair green too!
The Junior and Middle Syndicates planted a garden outside their classrooms. They prepared the gardens first by digging in compost and sheep pellets. Then they planted the bulbs and flowers.
The senior school planted a tree and a shrub.
A special place outside the main office was found for the Camellia Tree.
We had a rubbish-free lunch. Children were encouraged to bring lunch to school in reusable containers and to use paper wrap instead of plastic
But thats not all!
Children were encouraged to walk to school -if not all the way, at least some of the way.
We had a power-free time between 11 and 12.30 when all the classes turned their lights, computers and other electronic equipment off.
