Bablake's Upper Sixth students have completed another year of excellent conservation work for the Warwickshire Wildlife Trust.
Mr Paul Cleaver (Head of Art) and Miss Rebecca Kane (Biology), who have led the project, have been most impressed with the endeavour of this year's Upper Sixth Enrichment students who have opted for the Conservation option.
Work has continued all year at both Claybrookes Marsh and Tocil Wood clearing brambles, felling trees and building a dead hedge, under the expert guidance of the teachers. In addition, the groups have had a chance to help drain ditches at the latter location.
We trust the students have found the volunteering a rewarding experience which has developed some new skills for them, while also helping the conservation of some of Warwickshire's most valuable natural areas. We are sure they have certainly appreciated the escape from the classroom on a Friday afternoon after a hard week of academic work.
