Third Form Learn About Air Pollution

Today, Esther Lie and Dr Helena Rapp Wright from Imperial College London visited the Vaughan to talk to a committed group of Lower School pupils who are trying to learn more about air pollution and how it impacts climate change and our health. 

Esther and Dr Helena led an informative talk about their roles at Imperial College London, how they conduct research into air quality, the findings from their research, and the ways air pollution affects us and our environment. Our pupils were then invited to ask questions in an engaging Q&A session.

Thank you, Esther and Dr Helena, for an interesting and eye-opening session and to Ms McGrath, Teacher of Science for organising this opportunity for our pupils. They all thoroughly enjoyed the talk, learnt something new, and left feeling motivated to speak to their peers about the effects of air pollution. 

Well done to our Third Form representatives, Nathan A, Adriano D-P, Dominik G, Mathias G, Ray H, Ciaran H, Elijah K, Jeremiah N, and Serak S. The pupils will be talking to the First & Second Form about what they learnt and their ideas about the ways we can implement change as a school.
