Meat Free Tuesdays

Hydesville Tower School in Walsall is very excited to announce Meat Free Tuesdays, an initiative to encourage pupils and staff to have a healthier diet, save animals and the planet for at least once a week.

The idea of a Meat Free Day at Hydesville came about by Shaan Dulay in Year 5 and is supported by his fellow pupils in the Eco-Committee.

Headmaster, Mr Honey, explains: “We have been delighted by the pupil-led initiative to start an Eco-Committee. There was an immediate desire for many children to be involved, and they have been supporting a range of issues including litter picking, reducing plastic waste and looking at our carbon footprint. Whilst electric minibuses and solar panels may be a little way off, we have keen pupils putting the important issues at the forefront of our discussions.

“Shaan spoke with our Catering Manager, Mr Long, and me regarding the Meat-Free initiative. We were happy to make the changes and see how the pupils responded. If we reduce the dependency on animal farming for one day a week, the potential impact on the global climate could be significant.”

Hydesville’s first Meat Free Day took place yesterday and was a huge success! We will be trialling it every Tuesday for the next four weeks.  Please check out the menus here

We hope the initiative continues to receive positive reviews, there were certainly some happy faces yesterday!
