Barbara Ward Award Recipients for caring for the environment
Maisie, Hollis, Hannah & Theo (aged 14-15) have become the first Fisher More CAFOD Bloggers, making a video blog of the school, and how simple things like switching a light off really make a difference. They launched a campaign at Fisher More, delivering assemblies to raise awareness in the school community. Quickly realizing that this was an issue bigger than just the school community, the group invited the MP for Pendle to a question and answer session during which he was asked to outline the government’s plans for minimizing damage to our planet. He went away and brought the questions to Prime Minister's questions. Their work has been published on the school website and in the local press.
Their school chaplain says “The Bloggers have a determination to make a difference in our world however small.... small things with great love”.
The Fisher More CAFOD Bloggers are from Ss John Fisher & Thomas More RC High School
