Spring greetings from BHee

With the first signs of spring emerging in our school grounds and gardens, now is the perfect time to make plans for exploring our wonderful local green spaces with your pupils in the months to come.

Katie has availability for Wildlife workshops during the summer term, when she can help teachers address new curriculum requirements on species identification, while inspiring pupils to value our unique local habitats. Contact  Katie now to make a booking before her diary fills up!

Now is also a great time to plan for your next Eco-Schools award. Contact Helen for an informal chat about next steps, a meeting with your Eco Team, an assembly to raise the profile of your Eco-Schools work, or a staff meeting to make sure your colleagues are on board.

Best wishes
Helen and Katie
