Eco Awards June 2017

The Peterborough Eco Education Awards, sponsored by Skanska and organised by the charity PECT, is a celebration of the successes of schools that have participated in the Peterborough Eco Framework.

The Eco Framework is run by PECT to embed knowledge of sustainability issues into classrooms and inspire the next generation of forward -thinking students.

We showcased our outdoor clay pizza oven, built using traditional techniques and with sustainable, local materials. 

Children from across the school participated in the planning, building and testing of the oven and it was first put through its paces at our Summer Fayre where some of our year 6 children created and baked over 40 pizzas!

The children shared their knowledge (and pizza!) with other Peterborough schools, local businesses, counsellors, the Mayor and Mayoress of Peterborough, and won three awards for the project - the local and sustainable food award, the sustainable materials award and the 'Eco Factor' award which was awarded to the school with the most informative display and presentation at the event.
