Another Eco Win

Posted: 11th October 2017

Our Dulwich Prep Eco Warriors have been busy of late.

Recently, our Pre-Prep and Lower School Eco Warriors took part in a Roots & Shoots competition to design a new character that would fit the world of Dr Seuss’ The Lorax. The Old Vic will be staging a production of The Lorax later this and into next month and to celebrate this, they asked all London schools associated with Roots & Shoots to take part.

To our delight, our school won the competition – Kasper Steyn, 3L, submitted the winning puppet in the guise of ‘Lumi’, a Poseidon-like character who is the guardian of rivers and everything that lives in them (‘Lumi’ being the Albanian word for ‘river’). Roots & Shoots were impressed by the standard of entries they received from all our boys, ranging from a little character who lived in a rain drop to those who ate litter-clouds and plastic. They were all taken aback by how the message of upcycling shone through, with some designs being submitted in pre-used envelopes and shoe boxes rather than newly-bought ones.

Elsewhere, our Middle and Upper School eco boys are currently working on a grand plan for a school vegetable garden which they’ll design, build and maintain themselves on our Gallery Road site. This long-term project is intended to give the boys an opportunity for a hands-on approach with nature and wildlife and eventually allow then to care for and harvest the fruits of their hard work. More details will follow as the project unfolds.
