The Brampton Green Committee was formed as a Student Council sub-committee, but it has become much more than that. It’s now a team of likeminded individuals constantly striving for a more eco-friendly world, starting by looking at our college. We’ve launched several diverse ideas so far, including a presentation to all of Brampton’s staff to introduce a new school printing scheme to reduce the amount of paper being printed yearly. We’ve also formed a strong partnership with the Brampton Young Enterprise Team and we’re collaborating to create a more eco-friendly water bottle for the school.
Bernard, our Principal, kindly gifted two of the head Climate Committee members a book on the environment called “We are the Weather” by Jonathan Safran Foer. We are currently speaking to him about the prospect of him talking to all of the students of Brampton College to educate them further on the importance of wide recycling and behaving better for the environment as a whole. Furthermore, the Green Committee has already implemented several presentations to the students in the weekly personal tutor sessions. Whilst these have been a clear success, there is still more to be done. This is why we are currently looking at more accessible recycling bins throughout the school, making recycling even easier and more efficient to ensure no waste is placed in the wrong place. Watch out for even more initiatives when we return to college!
