Special assemblies for Schools for SustFest22

These special SustFest22 assemblies have been put together by the volunteers from our Sustainable Schools groups for schools across St Albans, Harpenden and the villages to use during the Sustainability Festival 15-31 May 2022.

Preparation: Please note some of the assemblies have links to internet sites, including You Tube videos. You will need to ensure your firewall does not prevent you from accessing these resources – we recommend a dummy run!

Teachers’ Notes: There are Teachers’ Notes for both Primary and Secondary schools for you to download. These include information on the content as well as links you can use to further develop your pupils’ understanding of climate change and how you can take action within school.

Fliers for Parents/carers: We would be grateful if you would send our fliers to Parents/Carers after watching the assemblies with your students. There is a flier for Primary and a flyer for Secondary.

If you have any problems, please do contact us using the form on the main schools page (link to that page at the bottom of this one).
