NEW Series of Environmental Workshops Launched During G7 Summit
We’re excited to announce the launch of our new face-to-face workshops to teach our children about environmental issues, conservation, and sustainability.
The first interactive workshop was held on Saturday, 12th June at The Hub in Nansledan, Newquay, and featured quizzes, games, and activities to help facilitate learning about our environmental impact. The children and young people were also taught ways to reduce their waste footprint, how to conserve marine life, and keep our ocean clean. The event was hosted by Bethany Burnett, one of our lovely fostering support workers, who in previous roles within education, has taught children of all ages about environmental sustainability.
Bethany Burnett, said: “I have experience of teaching children about how they can play their part in providing a solution for our planet and the small changes they can make to live more sustainably. When I joined Five Rivers, I was really keen to teach our children and young people. The G7 summit provided the perfect opportunity to launch our workshops that we have been working on for a while.”
Sarah Wells, fostering service manager added: “The first session was a huge success and we’re really looking forward to working with the children and young people throughout the summer. It’s important that we give the children in our care opportunities to learn outside of school so that they thrive when the time comes for them to live independently.”
