  • The lights-off event

    mdx 20150327 Screen Shot 2015-03-27 at 06.29.15-3
    On Friday the 27th of March we are pledging as a school to not use any electrical goods all morning. We will also only reuse scrap material. We are going to find out what lessons are like without any electricity in the classroom. We are also doing a fundraiser in the afternoon from 2.30pm in aid of WWF. We will be selling books, cakes and some fantastic T-shirts, pencil cases and bags that have been designed by the children. At the same time we hope to raise awareness for Earth Hour which is at 8.30pm on Saturday the 28th of March, all around the world. Join us! Please find more information and a powerful video here: http://www.earthhour.org/
