140th Anniversary - Our 'Year of Promise' Project

Blackheath High School was founded in 1880 by two inspiring women, Maria Grey and Emily Shirreff. Over the last 140 years the school has always been socially committed, seen in the heritage of our 40-year partnership with Johanna Street Board School and our collaboration with Woolwich Franciscan settlement in the 1890s. 

Therefore to celebrate our school’s incredible 140th Anniversary, we want to continue with our giving and open spirit and focus our energies on working towards a sustainable environment, an area we know our students feel passionate about.

We will focus our year-long celebration in 2020 on showing appreciation for our beautiful environment and local community, with a sustainability project: ‘BHS Year of Promise’.

BHS GDST 140 v2 300x

We are inviting all members of the Whole School community; students, parents, staff and alumnae to make environmentally-focussed pledges to help improve both our local community, and our planet.  

Speech Bubble web

Our target for 2020 is to make at least 140 pledges that will in some way contribute to preserving, improving and contributing positively to our natural environment along the themes of:

Spring Summer Autumn 2

To join in you can email your pledge, along with any supporting photo or film to:

BHSYearofPromise@bla.gdst.net

Or you can upload your pledge and any supporting pictures or films of your pledge activity to your (Facebook | Twitter | Instagram) social channels with:

 

#BHSYearofPromise #140thAnniversary

No pledge is too small. Small changes add up, especially when multiplied across our staff, pupils, parents and alumnae.

Made with Padlet

You can make pledges as an individual or collectively as a group. You could even think about joining a local community initiative:

  • Join your nearest litter pick event as a part of The Great British Spring Clean 2020 
  • Join in with Thames River Watch and helping clean up and monitor the health of the Thames
  • Contact the Woodland Trust who can assist with tree planting pledges you may wish to make
  • Or help increase biodiversity in the local area by volunteering in replanting projects in Greenwich, Blackheath and Lewisham by joining local environmental group 'Greening South East London'. The volunteers seek to improve pockets of small to medium sized land by planting trees, shrubs and flowers.
 
Mrs Argile, Deputy Head is pledging to reduce her carbon footprint, eat less meat, put on a jumper instead of turning up the heating and buying locally sourced produce.
 
The Waring family pledge to shop more in charity shops, to support sustainable fashion, up-cycling and to continue the life of pre-loved goods rather than buying new.
 
Rebecca Richards, Science Teacher & STEMinist pledges to use her bamboo re-usable cup and never use take-away cups.
 
Our genius Design & Technology Department have pledged to launch our very own bamboo bike making club.

 

Head, Carol Chandler-Thompson, is ambitiously pledging to not print anything for a whole year!  

You can read our Head talking about the importance of teaching children about climate change in a healthy and constructive way in The Independent.

To mark the launch of our project we have made Whole School Pledges to reduce ocean plastic, in honour of our local maritime environment by the River Thames in Greenwich.

"We hope 2020 will be remembered as the Year of Promise. We look forward to seeing how together we can all contribute to that legacy, and crucially create behaviour change to last well beyond our 140th Anniversary year" - Head, Carol Chandler-Thompson
