Back in November, the Eco-Committee presented the IKEA Eco School Project Competition to the school in an assembly. They asked for designs for a wildlife garden in the grounds of St Peter’s.
Well done to Year 5, who produced some amazing designs. The Eco-Committee had a tough job judging the entries, but eventually agreed on a tie for first place, with the winning designs coming from Zainah and Isla. Esme conjured up the winning name for the garden, ‘The Happy Hideaway’, should the project go ahead! Scarlett McC and Ivy also put a lot of thought into their designs, so all five children received a prize for their efforts. Well done!
The Eco-Committee submitted their final design to IKEA in December. Earlier this month we discovered that we had been short-listed and had to go to IKEA to do a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style presentation. Isla, Esme, Ivy and Jude were remarkably composed and did an amazing job of presenting our idea to the five very important-looking judges, who sat behind their desks with pen and paper, writing notes. Well done, you did St Peter’s proud!
We will know if we have been successful by the 25th January.
