ESDGC

Environmental Sustainable Development & Global Citizenship known as ESDGC is a key area of school life at Mary Immaculate High School. We feel that ESDGC is about:

  • The needs and rights of both present and future generations
  • Global issues such as climate change, environmental depletion, human rights, conflict and democracy
  • The local and global implications of our actions both as individuals and as the wider school community and what we can do as a school community can do in response to these issues

When breaking this down we decided to learn about:

  • The natural environment
  • Consumption and waste
  • Climate change
  • Wealth and poverty
  • culture & & diversity
  • Choice and decisions
  • Health

Pupils’ have the opportunity to learn about ESDGC through their lessons and through extra-curricular activities. We currently have three ESDGC related initiatives that help support and promote ESDGC. They include Eco-Schools, Healthy Schools and the Fair Trade initiative. Key staff include Mr Richards (Assistant Head), Mrs Davey (Healthy Schools Co-ordinator), Ms Wheeler (Fair Trade Co-ordinator) & Mr Troote (Eco Schools Co-ordinator)
