EcoFest activity

The Winstedt School hosts its first EcoFest events series featuring guest speakers and activities around topics of sustainability, animal welfare and protecting the earth's resources. 

A couple of weeks ago, Winstedt had its first mini edition of Ecofest, an event around creating awareness and action for the environment.  Four great speakers came in to run interactive talks with the Junior and Early Years schools, teaching the students and teachers about how our food choices affect the planet, animal compassion, reducing waste, monkey guarding, what’s happening to our forests and oceans and more!

Students got a chance to try some small activities as well as put their learning to the test with a pop quiz at the end of the sessions!  Yummy plant based treats were also handed out which had the students coming back for more!

We look forward to running EcoFest again in the new academic year, going bigger and better for the planet! Keep an eye out for what’s to come.

Thank you to the speakers – Ashley, Ambaree, Patricia and Sabrina who came to share at Winstedt.
