Bishop Luffa Goes Green

Bishop Luffa recently hosted its first ‘Go Green Week’. The aim of the week was to create a meaningful, memorable and fun week on environmental issues to generate awareness and an opportunity to take action to make a difference. Each day had a different theme: Monday was ‘Make small changes’ - all staff and students were encouraged to have a plastic and meat free lunchbox and a reusable bottle. Year 7s had a litter picking contest and everyone got to watch a fantastic video clip created by one of our Year 11s about what small changes we can each make to help maintain our biodiversity.

Tuesday was Recycling Day - students brought in a range of items to be recycled— from batteries to Covid testing kits. At lunchtime, Year 11s ran a wonderful recycled art project (turning bottles into butterflies). Another group ran an outdoor club for the week, with students from all years getting stuck in and transforming our neglected green areas, but also, learning about the flora and fauna through pond dipping. Wednesday was ‘Car Free Day’ - an International event held on this day. It saw many staff and students changing their journey to school - instead of driving, choosing to walk, cycle, catch a bus or train. For many this was a new challenge - cycling from West Wittering, North Mundham, Bognor and beyond. Lunchtime was our first ever ‘Cycle Powered Karaoke’ - which was much enjoyed by all. After school, there was a buzz of creativity as a number of students took part in a two day ‘Upcycling workshop’, trying out ways to transform old clothes into something new.

Thursday was ‘PARKing Day’ - eight parking spaces were transformed into a gallery of Chelsea flower show-inspired garden designs created in art from recycled materials, wonderfully decorated with plants generously donated by Hills Plants. These were judged by Sarah Sharpe - our local Green Party Councillor. The winning students will have the opportunity to transform their design ideas into an actual mini garden in our car park.

The week culminated in an upcycle dress up day with students and staff thinking carefully where their clothes come from - choosing to wear second-hand, charity shop bought or upcycled costumes. We did see some fantastic costumes! Lots of fun, lots of great discussions, lots of small actions taken...we hope that many will continue to make these ‘green’ choices!
