Aspire Academy has organised some conservation workshops in partnership with various local and national organisations protecting wildlife and the environment.
The sessions will introduce our Key Stage 3 students to the local wildlife, teaching them the importance of conservation by taking action on environmental issues that they are most passionate about.
The first workshops will be led by Murray Woodward from BASC (The British Association for Shooting and Conservation) and will be taking place in our conservation area within the school grounds. Students will have the opportunity to build bird boxes and set them up with support around the estate. The boxes will be numbered and data will be collected throughout the year to record box usage as well as the type of birds present, therefore supporting the breeding of at risk and endangered species within the area.
The session for our Year 7 students will take place on Thursday, 20th May from 2.30pm to 4.30pm.
The session for our Year 8 students will take place on Tuesday, 25th May from 2.30pm to 4.30pm.
A maximum of 12 students can attend the training and will be on a first come, first served basis. Students who miss out this time will be placed on a waiting list for the next workshop.
