This page is dedicated to environmental projects undertaken at Fernhill School. We are proud to have a Geography Teacher, Miss Speed, who holds the UN Climate Change Teacher Accreditation.
Save Biodiversity to Save Ourselves
Fernhill have formed a ‘Climate Club’ that meets after school in response to Hampshire County Council’s invitation to participate in
the project ‘Our Climate Crisis Forest’ and the urgent need to reduce global warming.
Our totem pole project will be on display in Winchester, please see the article below to read more in many languages.
Fernhill joined Rushmoor Borough Council to help plant 1000 trees at Southwood Country Park. The trees were provided by Farnborough Airport under their Carbon Footprint Reduction program.
Our students and staff received a lesson in how to plant the trees correctly and we really enjoyed helping out!
Staff from RBC, Councillors, Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership, other local schools and community groups such as RVS’ Blooming Marvellous gardeners helped.
In the Summer months the Conservation Club (formerly the Gardening Club) planted two 'Victorious' red roses, bee friendly plants such as scabious and loads of sunflower seeds by C block. The sunflowers looked fantastic in September.
In Autumn they planted daffodil bulbs around the site for a colourful Spring display.
Many other projects are planned!
Scabious - insect friendly
Wildflowers - sown from seed and transplanted in May
Succulent 'pups' potted up to sell at our Global Fair in July.
