Climate change on the agenda at Pershore High

Evesham Editorial 1st Apr, 2016 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016   0

A TRIO of representatives from Britain’s US embassy have visited Pershore High School to educate students on the effects of climate change.

Ed Heartney, Isabella Kuliga and David Hartnoll spoke to the school’s sixth form students about the current issues of climate change and how they can be combated.

The visit was inspired by an article in The Times written by American Ambassador Mathew Barzun last December about the special relationship between the UK and USA in reducing climate change.

David Train, a former Olympic canoing coach from Fladbury, then sent a letter to Mr Barzun telling him about his bell boats the school use as a sustainable way to help tackle the problem.




Headteacher Clive Corbett said: “Almost every one of our pupils has taken part in bell boating. The bell boat was inspired by Hawaiian culture so I’m sure┬áPresident Barack Obama, an Hawaiian, would be delighted to learn from Ambassador Barzun we use that type of boat.

“Ed Heartney told more than 100 students Ambassador Barzun is passionate about spreading the message of the special relationship we share with the US. It was a very well attended and interesting session for all concerned.”
