MGC achieve Enviroschools Silver

Making wax wraps, visiting and sharing ideas with Nelson College for Girls, developing an upcycling shop, and presenting a whole year’s class work from an Environmental Sustainability Course to community representatives, has helped Marlborough Girls’ College successfully reflect at the Enviroschools Silver level.

This is an impressive achievement for a larger secondary school and we congratulate the students and staff who have supported them, in particular lead teacher Melynda Bentley, who ran the Environmental Sustainability Course for the first time this year. Community representatives who supported the students taking the course were highly impressed with the girls’ commitment and passion.

Mayor Leggett, who presented the Silver certificate at the MGC Senior prize giving to Holly Wills, the Enviroclub leader and also a student in the Environmental Sustainability class, said he could see a very bright future for the students who have taken on the responsibility of speaking up and taking action for the environment.
