Congratulations to Bishop Stopford's School for your Water Explorer success thus far.
This team have been exploring the Secret Water Mission, including keeping food diaries and persuading their teachers to lower their water footprint by swapping from drinking coffee to tea. Students brought in ideas about caring for the planet and why reducing their consumption of meat will help to save the wor'ds water.
