St. Luke’s Science & Sports College – Mission Update!

What a busy but productive few months we have had!

  • In school we raised £2169 for Haiti and donated this to Shelterbox.
  • Our links with the Congo continue as we support the development of a school and the empowerment of the children as they are able to access knowledge.
  • Students in English wrote to Nestle and as a direct result Nestle switched to Fair Trade Sources.
  • Visiting medics came into school and gave a very informative lecture about Madagascar including its environmental issues and the project work on health and contraception.
  • Two members of staff went to Nigeria and we are now forming active links across the curriculum.
  • Within the college we have planted up four raised beds with vegetables, herbs and soft fruits. In addition to that we have planted a small orchard including apple, pear, plum and wild cherry trees. Produce from these areas will go to our local Food Bank scheme.
  • We teamed up with Devon Wildlife Trust in a new project to establish Wildlife Corridors across Exeter. All of our year 7 took part and looked at the wildlife we have, built three bug towers, made and hung up bird feeders and nest boxes and planted more wild flowers around our pond area and bog area. We have also started work on developing a wild flower bank and planting wild flowers amongst our crops.
  • We are busy composting and now collect the fruit left overs at break times and all the fruit and vegetable waste from Food Technology.
  • We recently signed up to a new sow and grow scheme and as one of the first schools to apply won a tonne of compost!
  • During Science week our Green Team ran assemblies all week on global bio-diversity and how we are increasing the habitats and bio-diversity in our own school. Mr H played an active role and the importance of caring globally was reinforced with the key note that every little action, no matter how small , gives hope and therefore a ‘Reason to Hope’ for everybodys’ future and the future of their planet.
