The Education Group is currently dormant. We held two successful events. Firstly an open session for teachers called “How Does Your Garden Grow?” on how to start and maintain a school food garden, and how to link the garden directly to the curriculum. Then we ran a session for pupils and teachers at the training day for St Albans Schools Sustainable Ambassadors. These Ambassadors are pupils from primary schools throughout the district who go back to their schools and run small projects to help the environment.
The TSA Education group became dormant because we realised a huge amount of good work is already happening in schools, particularly through the national Eco Schools awards and the local Sustainable Ambassadors programme.
If anyone is interested in reinvigorating the group, we’d love to hear from you! We think there is still much to be done in engaging children more outside of the school content. If you’re interested, get in touch.
