Eco Award for SHS!
Sheffield High School has been celebrating after receiving a prestigious local award for ongoing efforts to become more environmentally friendly. The school was awarded the prize for the most environmentally friendly Secondary School, jointly with Westfield School, at the 2009 Sheffield Telegraph Environment Awards.
The awards, which are one of the biggest local environment events in the region, were held at Whirlowbrook Hall on the 15th of October and were hosted by BBC TV weatherman Paul Hudson. The event was attended by Mrs Dunsford along with representatives from the school who have been working to promote environmental issues, which included biology teacher Miss Dean and year 13 pupils Lizzie Murphy and Head Girl Issie Rughani. You can watch Issie and Lizzie’s interview about receiving the award on the Sheffield Telegraph newspaper website.
The Sheffield Telegraph Environment awards began in 2007 to recognise individuals, businesses and organisations that are doing their best to protect and preserve the world we live in. The award recognises the work that has been done in and around Sheffield High School, particularly by their 6th form eco-group and their team of eco-representatives from each of the forms, to make the school more environmentally friendly and aware.
The work of the eco-group within the school is detailed on the page on our environmental impact.
