Children mark COP27 with ABO Wind and a “green” assembly

The school assembly was the culmination of seven weeks of work and learning and brought together parents and family members, so it was a great opportunity for the children to share with them all that they had learned.

On the occasion of the COP27 in Egypt, the students highlighted their own knowledge of the environment by taking part in a green quiz. All questions had an enduring theme, with students having to choose the correct answers on a range of topics such as wind power and solar power.
