How is Co-op improving sustainability?
Geography students got to visit 1 Angel Square to learn about the way the Co-op fulfil their environmental commitment!
We toured the building taking in eye-opening views of the city and applied knowledge from lessons to the changing landscape of Manchester. A group competition followed focussing on Fairtrade, energy, carbon consumption and water consumption.
There were great reports from the trip:
“I learnt that mills are part of Manchester’s history and that Angel Square monitors how much energy the school uses.” Umar- Year 7
“I most enjoyed learning about the history of the Co-op and what they do to help the environment and make the world a better place.”- Peace- Year 7
“I learnt that the design of the building allows natural light and therefore this is better for the environment as it is saving energy.” Ashlyn- Year 8
“The trip will allow me to add more detail in my writing as I learnt different facts about water usage.” Isabel- Year 9
Students will be sharing what they learnt back in the classroom as they continue to engage in local and global issues impacting our environment!
