SLEAFORD REP SUPPORTS 2019 LIVE EARTH COMPETITION FOR LOCAL SCHOOLS
The Sleaford Renewable Energy Plant is supporting the 2019 Live Earth Competition for Year 5 pupils in Sleaford which will take place from February to April 2019. The competition will give the pupils a better understanding of the global causes and impacts of climate change and provide them with an opportunity to use their writing skills to make their voice heard by local, national and global governments.
The competition, open to just six schools, is organised by Global Sleaford and is also supported by North Kesteven District Council and Christian Aid.
School children will be asked to write a letter to Cllr Richard Wright, Leader of North Kesteven Council and Dr Caroline Johnson, the MP for Sleaford & North Hykeham, telling them about their concerns for the planet and asking them to do all they can to ensure that the world is a good place for all people to live in.
The shortlisted pupils will have an opportunity to read their letters in public at a prize-giving event to which Cllr Wright and Dr Johnson will be invited to attend.
Also, a teacher (provided by Christian Aid) will provide an interactive workshop which will stimulate the children and encourage them to research further information about climate change.
Two teachers from each school that has entered the Live Earth Competition will have the opportunity to tour the Sleaford Renewable Energy Plant where they will be provided with a box of resources from the Plant to take back to school for further activities.
Schools wishing to enter the competition should contact Les Parker at [email protected] .
