Eco team visit National Oceanography Centre

Next to Dock Gate 4 in Southampton lies the National Oceanography Centre. This important organisation is responsible for studying all aspects of the World's Oceans.

Newlands were invited to send 30 children from Years 5 and 6 to find out more about climate change and what can be done to minimise global warming. The children were able to hear from PHD students and staff at the centre about the problem and how changes were being monitored. They were then encouraged to think about their own carbon footprint and things that they could do to minimise the impact.

The children were sent off to think about what the ideal Eco School would look like.

The children were fantastic ambassadors for the school, they showed a great awareness of the issues and identified things they were already doing and other ideas that they could suggest.
