St Thomas More Catholic School travelled to the Houses of Parliament on Friday

Pupils from a Bexleyheath primary school headed to the Houses of Parliament last week after creating a pioneering outdoor classroom to tackle climate change.

Year six pupils from St Thomas More Catholic School met with climate change minister Claire Perry on Friday, to share how they created an outdoor classroom which depended on natural light instead of electricity and was created around the school’s existing environment.

“The opportunity to speak with the minster for climate allowed us all to say what we hoped to achieve by building an outdoor classroom, to help future generations understand that nature and humanity should go hand in hand, alongside one another,” said headteacher Colette Doran-Hannon.

“Mrs Doran-Hannon concluded: “The meeting gave us the encouragement to continue to do what we do in our little piece of Bexleyheath.

“We hope that our work in school can encourage others to do the same or similar so that our children’s children continue the stewardship of our planet.”
