A Journey Through Carbon Footprint Education


In the ongoing mission to raise environmental awareness and empower the next generation of eco-conscious warriors, Chalk Hill Primary school recently embarked on the second phase of its carbon footprint education programme with Ultra Education. With eager participation from Year 2 to Year 6 students, the programme aimed to in still a deep understanding of climate change and the pivotal role each individual plays in safeguarding our planet.

Over the course of 12 weeks, students delved into the complexities of climate change, exploring its causes, and unravelling the interconnected web of environmental responsibilities. Through engaging workshops and interactive sessions, they not only absorbed vital knowledge but also cultivated a sense of urgency and ownership towards environmental conservation.

One highlight of the program was a captivating field trip to the Grand Union hub community, a community hub with landscaped gardens and beautiful river canal, a place where communities engage in ecofriendly projects. Here, against the backdrop of nature’s splendour, students immersed themselves in a hands-on carbon footprint workshop. Where they used recycled materials such as cardboard boxes, scrap paper, and cling film rolls to create a creative journey of a symbolic world map showcasing the profound impact of human activity on our planet. From deforestation to ocean pollution, each element painstakingly constructed served as a moving reminder of the fragility of our ecosystems.

The beautiful and colourful art piece has taken centre stage in their school, and not only will this display be more than just a visual spectacle; it’s a testament to the commitment of Chalk Hill Primary school and its students towards effecting tangible change. Accompanying the exhibition will be a comprehensive action plan devised by the students themselves, outlining concrete steps the school community can take to minimize its carbon footprint. From implementing recycling initiatives to advocating for sustainable practices, each suggestion represents a collective pledge to nurture and protect our planet.

As we witness the passion and dedication of these young environmental eco warriors, it becomes evident that the future of our planet lies in capable hands. Through education, advocacy, and action, Chalk Hill Primary school is also paving the way for a greener, more sustainable tomorrow—one empowered student at a time.
