Climate Change Week of Action

Last week, students at Harton Academy took part in South Tyneside’s ‘Climate Change Week of Action’. Students in years 7 and 8 discovered the causes behind climate change and the growing problems we face as a global community. Students have been involved with writing letters to officials to discuss Climate Change and some students in Year 7 also took part in a tree planting programme to help reduce the school’s carbon footprint.  Sir Ken Gibson added ‘environmental pressures caused by climate change will present future challenges and it is important that our students understand the role they can play in an ever-changing world’.
