Lucky pupils from
Stonar School have been given the opportunity to work collaboratively with
students across the world to build their awareness of global issues after
partnering with the World Wide Fund for Nature.
With its rural location
on an 80-acre campus, Stonar provides pupils with a countryside school and an
awareness of environmental issues. The school is included in the Globeducate
group, which provides pupils with opportunities to build relationships with
others from around the world, to travel and to leave the school inspired to be
involved in important global issues.
Last week, it was
confirmed that Globeducate and WWF have partnered together and, along with
25,000 other young people from nine countries across the world, pupils at
Stonar School will benefit from the exciting relationship.
WWF is one of the world’s largest
independent conservation organisations and is active in nearly 100 countries.
The charity is fighting to ensure a world with thriving habitats and species so
it becomes unacceptable to overuse our planet’s resources.
Following the collaboration, Stonar will be hosting screenings of the Netflix series, Our Planet, and taking part in WWF’s ‘Wear it Wild’ event in June, raising money to protect endangered species. A group of pupils will also have the chance to attend a summit at the WWF-UK Living Planet Centre, a selection of guest speaker events at individual schools and a trip to the David Attenborough Premiere screening at the Royal Albert Hall.
At the start of the year, Stonar’s Prep School chose to support the charity Sumatran Orangutan Society and have succeeded in raising a grand total of £5,156.34.
