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.
