Children’s Parliament on the Environment 2014
Children’s Parliament on the Environment on 27th March, our 13th, was great success this year!
Ten schools from the local area presented their own environmental project, that they had worked
on with the Urban Studies Centre, in front of their peers and invited guests in the council chamber
of Hammersmith Town Hall. Councillor Georgie Cooney chaired the event and special awards were given
out by the deputy mayor, Councillor Adronie Alford. Judges includes Jenny Stark from the Urban Studies
Centre and Trevor Bowyer from Holland Park Ecology Centre.
The schools are:
Ark Bentworth Primary- Grand Union Canal Discovery Trail (Research Award)
Addison Primary – How we Live Now
Good Shepherd- Pollution isn’t the Solution
Langford – Fulham Wharf’s Environmental Centre
St. John’s Walham Green- Our Science Garden (Environmental Action Award)
Fulham Primary- The Red Fox Code (Children’s Award)
St. Stephens- Making Fruit Fun (Presentation Award)
St. Thomas of Canterbury- Our World War One Hero
Our Lady of Victories The River Thames at Chelsea
Queens Manor Fulham FC- Own Goal or Penalty?
Special Awards were presented to 4 of the schools but Councillor Cooney praised the standard of all of the presentations and recommended future jobs in politics and television presenting for the children. Well done to all of you!
