On Friday 22nd June Arthur Terry students, across all year groups, presented their tutor groups’ recycled plastic sculptures to mark ‘World Oceans Day’.
The project, inspired by Geography teacher, Mrs Martin, was organised to raise awareness of the huge problem of single use plastics entering the world’s oceans at the rate of a garbage truck’s worth each hour!
Each sculpture was made from waste plastic discarded on the school site. Head teacher, Mrs Kibble and Business Manager, Mrs Phillips judged the incredible array of designs featured below, with Mr Tracey’s form the ultimate winner producing a MASSIVE plastic jellyfish!
Mr Kinsella’s form’s wonderful giant water bottle recreation also warrants special mention. A massive thanks to all students and staff for getting involved in this fun and meaningful campaigning project.
A final thanks must also go to school site team colleague, Mr Andy Brierley who came in at the weekend to ensure all the plastic was 100% recycled at the local recycle centre!
