The School was invited to participate in the Speaking 4 the Planet event - a Public Speaking and Drama competition. This is an annual global celebration for World Environment Day held on 5 June. This is an internationally recognised day supported by the United Nations Environment Program. Geography students were selected as part of a team representing the School. This was an invaluable opportunity for the students to showcase their talents in expressing the 2017 theme Connecting People with Nature - I’m with Nature! This event is registered with the UN’s World Environment Day website.
