Sustainability Showcase at Harrogate College
Springfield Homecare, North Yorkshire were really fortunate to have been invited, by Harrogate College, to be a part of their ‘Sustainability Showcase.’ This showcase brought together their art, hairdressing, beauty therapy, hospitality and joinery departments, who were all eager to show their skills.
March was ‘Green’ month for Harrogate College, and their sustainability showcase highlighted not only sustainability as the main theme, but also college values, and STEM7 skills. The main theme for each department was to reuse products and materials the students had; they could borrow materials but they could not buy anything.
Students learned about recycling, reusing and reducing waste, discussing how small changes can make a big difference and they made their own pledges to being more sustainable.
Local businesses donated the food for the event and Springfield were delighted to donate a prize to Harrogate College in support of their showcase. Prizes were awarded to the students in each department who stuck to the brief, embraced STEM7 Skills and incorporated the values of the college.
