The latest newsletter from BHee with information on: two twilights, training for teachers, free workshops, downloadable resources, and more!

Dear <<First Name>>,

Welcome to BHee's first newsletter of the new school year. We hope you're brimming with ideas for developing your Eco-Schools work and school grounds in the year to come.

Now is the perfect time to carry out an Environmental Review with your new Eco Committee. The pupil-friendly BHee Environmental Review documents can be edited to suit your school; download them from the BHee website

Autumn is also the time to plan a pupil-led Energy Efficiency Campaign.  Participate in Switch Off Fortnight in late November, or choose your own timing - the most important thing is to motivate the whole school to combat climate change by saving energy.  The BHee website has a range of resources and ideas to help you plan your campaign.

We're look forward to another exciting year of BHee activities and Eco-Schools awards!
Best wishes

Helen and Katie
