Wildlife Week

GHS Wildlife Week has been great fun with activities ranging from wildflower posy making, flower dyes in textiles, wildlife scavenger hunts, animal origami and planting of pollinator pitstops.

This year’s House Wildlife Photography Competition has a new category for pupils to showcase something they have done for wildlife. To inspire, we’ve shared some of Surrey Wildlife Trust’s ‘Actions for Nature’.  Why not start documenting progress for next year’s competition, with some timelapse photography?

Year 9 are tracking wildlife in Natural History lessons using satellite tagging technology and camera livestreams. Curiosity Catalyst Club are finding out about life ‘Behind the Lens’, a film of wildlife photographer Hamsa Yusaf. And both staff and Sixth Form book groups are discussing Hannah Ritchie’s new book ‘Not the End of the World’ with its fresh and more optimistic look at sustainable human living. (Did you know that forest cover in Europe is up?) Perhaps a parent book group would like to join us!

As we go into the Bank Holiday weekend remember we are in No Mow May! So relax, leave at least some of the lawn uncut and enjoy seeing more colour and pollinators!
