Fourteen Year 7 students attended a workshop on conservation of habitats and species earlier this month and took great pride in building bird boxes for our local wildlife; Year 8 students took part in the same project the following week.
Some of the newly built bird boxes have already been installed around the school grounds in quiet and inconspicuous places. In the future more conservation equipment will be installed around Aspire, including bird feeders, flower planters and outdoor cameras to observe wildlife, while also helping in educating our students about the importance of our actions with regard to local animal habitats.
Making Aspire's outdoor space wildlife friendly is a way of teaching our students to be respectful of the environment and the animals we share a space with, gaining practical experience of building and maintaining environmental equipment and by taking pride of what they are achieving in their local community.
