Building Environmental Awareness in Schools - 07 June 2013

Dunton’s Managing Director, Mr Neil Roe, set time aside in May to share some key environmental issues with the pupils at All Saints CE Primary School in West Bromwich.

The seminar enabled the students to make the link between global issues and their own environment focussing on simple ways to reduce waste, promote sustainability and recognise the importance of local wildlife and bees in our eco-system.

Dunton also sponsored the schools 'eco-team' by providing a starter-pack of books, gardening tools, bird feeders, flower seeds and a bee hotel to help kick start their plans to create an environmentally friendly nature area.

The Outdoor Learning/Forest School Leader, Tracey Grainger, showed her appreciation and excitement for the education of the pupils.

Dunton holds firm to the value of education in our society today, especially for the young minds. We truly believe that it provides the catalyst for future generations to bring about change and it is only right that we impart our knowledge with tomorrow's future. Children are great imitators so we give them something great to imitate.

Whilst implementing our schools programme we also recognise the importance of voluntary community work and are particularly interested to learn of any future opportunities where Dunton may be able to provide environmental assistance.
