At King Edward VI Sheldon Heath Academy we like to do our bit for the environment and we are currently working towards the Eco School's Bronze award. Staff and pupils in the Geography department have been involved in thinking about ways that the school can be kinder to the environment by undertaking an environmental review and creating posters to encourage people to be more sustainable around the school. All of our printer toner cartridges are sent for recycling as an example.
Not only is this great for developing the ideas of pupils in the future it will also mean that the school will obtain the Eco Schools Bronze Award that can be added to its many other achievements!
Students in year 8 took part in the Sandwell Poetry Rocks Final 2011 and won!! In the first round of judging, our students were tied in 1st place. After a "poetry-off" we managed to convince the judges and won the top prize.
