Congratulations to Calthorpe Park School in the UK for winning Global Team of the Week!
The Calthorpe Eco Club have completed many challenges within Global Water which allowed them to host a water festival in early May.
The Eco club were able to show what they had learned to 250 other students within the school. They held stalls that covered topics such as the global scarcity of water, the secret water that is hidden in everyday items and the importance of recycling amongst many others. It was a pleasure to visit the water festival and see all the students learning a lot whilst having great fun. We came away with some great photos!
Well done to everyone involved in the Calthorpe Eco Club! We hope you enjoy your prizes!
