Clean Air DayPosted on: October 21st 2020
On the 8th October, Amery Hill School supported Clean Air Day, the UK's largest air pollution campaign, engaging thousands of people at hundreds of events. Clean Air Day brings together communities, businesses, schools and the health sector to:
Improve public understanding of air pollution
- Build awareness of how air pollution affects our health
- Explain the easy actions we can all do to tackle air pollution, helping to protect the environment and our health.
In 2019 more than 3,700 organisations and hundreds of thousands of individuals took part in 614 events across the UK. This year, Amery Hill School took part in the campaign to reduce pollutants in the air by encouraging people to walk and cycle rather than using vehicles for travel. Across the week, students had an assembly, took part in a quiz, and were able to enter a photo competition. To mark the day, we also ran a competition to see who could achieve the highest step total on the day. Well done to everyone who took part, including our Year 7 prize winners Hugo, Ellie, Luke and Ben who together recorded a massive 97,928 steps!
