We have a Green Blue Peter Badge Winner!

A Year 8 student is a Green Blue Peter badge winner. 

This badge is awarded to young people who impress judges with a poster or letter about the environment. She was awarded her badge for her work with butterflies. She began by purchasing 10 caterpillars. She took great care of these creatures until they were ready to form a chrysalis. Once in chrysalis form she placed them in a safe habitat she produced and waited for the butterflies to emerge. The butterflies, when they arrived, were fed on flowers and sugar water until they grew strong. Once ready she released her butterflies into the wild. She then wrote about her experiences and took many  photographs. The judges were enthralled with her work. She really is a is an Eco star!!
