Earlier this month on the 4th July, eight Year 6 Townfield Primary School children accompanied by their teachers – Mrs Haggett and Mrs Gee – attended the Wirral Eco-Award Convention at the Woodchurch High School where a number of primary and secondary schools competed for 10 different awards.
To start the day, each school gave a presentation that celebrated their eco work. The Townfield Primary School children stood up in front of hundreds of people and with great confidence explained the bloomtrigger project under the proud glance of their teachers.
After a short break, all of the schools returned to perform their eco songs. The Townfield’s song was set to ‘Where is the Love’ by the Black Eyed Peas. The children helped to change the lyrics into a moving song about working together to save the planet. They then took part in some drama activities before sitting down to a canteen lunch.
To end the day, the winners for each of the 10 awards were announced. There were not enough awards for every school at the convention, so they nervously hoped their school name would be called! Eventually, the 9th award for ‘Global impact’ was awarded to Townfield Primary School! The judges were very impressed with the bloomtrigger project and loved that their children could help to save the rainforest through their good behaviour and attitude at school.

At Bloomtrigger we want to say BIG thanks to Townfield Primary School – students, teachers and rest of the team included – for bringing our project to the Wirral Eco-Award Convention and spreading the word amongst other schools. This award means a lot for us because it recognises that Bloomtrigger is empowering children to make an effective impact on the global environment. So we are proud to be a part of this award as well!
