Megan earns Blue Peter Green Badge
June 17, 2021

Rydal Penrhos pupil Megan Roberts was rewarded for her efforts to help the environment with a Blue Peter Green Badge.

Our amazing pupils at Rydal Penrhos are always keen to lend their support to environmental causes. The school’s Eco Committee is a driving force behind some positive changes across the site in recent years, which is a testament to their caring nature and the knowledge acquired from dedicated teaching staff on important topical matters that will impact them in later life.

This not only happens during school hours, but pupils are also extremely environmentally conscious at home. Another example of this recently came from Year 1 pupil Megan Roberts, who decided to take part in a Climate Heroes campaign organised by the popular BBC children’s show, Blue Peter.

The initiative focused on participants taking Power, Plastic and Plants pledges and sticking to them for a period of two weeks. This involved tasks such as conserving energy, focusing on recycling and eating a vegetarian diet.

Megan took on this challenge with her customary determination and selfless attitude, recording her pledges over the fortnight and sending it to Blue Peter for consideration.

She chose to plant more plants at her home, turning the lights off every time she left a room and taking it upon herself to do the recycling.

Those within the television company were suitably impressed, writing back to Megan and presenting the pupil with a special Blue Peter Green Badge in recognition of her outstanding accomplishment.

Megan’s numbers will now be added to a totaliser of energy saved from other Climate Heroes up and down the country, which has offset an incredible 70,965 kilos of carbon so far thanks to this year’s pledges.

In addition to having the distinction of wearing a Blue Peter Green Badge proudly, Megan is also able to visit 200 attractions across the United Kingdom free of charge after attaining the badge.

We would like to offer a huge congratulations to Megan on her efforts. Everyone at Rydal Penrhos is so proud of you!
