Dymchurch Primary School were fortunate to be nominated by The Sports Trust to attend an Eco Ambassador Training Day as we are one of their Platinum Level Schools and they had to choose one from each area.
The purpose of the day is to support schools in producing a student led action plan to be delivered by our 10 Pupil Ambassadors back in to our school and community.
Congratulations to our School Eco Ambassadors - Lucy, Aiden, Georgia, Elsie, Alex, Mia, Lucas, Bertie, Sophia and Annie-Rae.
They day included an inspiring athlete, interactive workshops delivered by Kent Wildlife Trust and Kent County Council Schools Active Travel Team.
Background information on why we are doing this:
The School Games is the national programme in England that inspiring millions of young people across the country to take part in appropriate and competitive school sport. Youth Sport Trust, who oversee the delivery of the School Games and a network of School Games Organisers, turned to Planet Earth Games Trust to help enhance the sustainability of schools across England. The first part of this work has been developing a new ‘green’ value.
The existing School Games values are Passion, Self-Belief, Respect, Honesty, Determination and Teamwork and were developed by young people to recognise how the experience of sport should be epitomised and embodied within schools. So, Planet Earth Games has worked with the School Games network and consulted with over 700 primary and secondary age students across England to shape the new value.
