Woodhead Oswestry Sales and Lettings were invited to a preview evening at the Marches
School this month, to showcase the plans for
the forthcoming School Eco-Dome project.
The Eden Project-style geo-domes funded
by the Tesco ‘Bags of Help’ initiative and sponsored by Woodhead
Oswestry Sales and Lettings, Tesni Homes and Carbon Zero, is scheduled to commence later
The project will see a disused piece of
land on the school grounds converted into a landscaped area occupied by 3 dome
shaped classrooms to enhance the students’ learning and understanding of
conservation, the environment and wildlife habitats.
Stage one will see the first dome being
erected whilst further funding is sourced to complete the project.
During the preview evening residents and
local businesses will be given the opportunity to hear about the vision for the
school project and will then be invited to view the recently opened Tesni Homes
show home and sample locally sourced delicacies.
Sarah Longville, Executive Headteacher
said, “We are delighted to be the first geo-dome classroom in England to be
constructed by company Carbon Zero. This would not be possible without the
support and commitment from our event partners. It is a transformational time
for the school in the way our lessons will be conducted through an innovative
and engaging learning environment. We welcome our local community to embrace
the concept and share the use of this new space.”
Kate Howell, owner of Woodhead Oswestry
Sales and Letting explained “It’s really important for me to support
educational projects like this one. As a local business person, I feel a sense
of responsibility to give back to the local community. I have a young family
myself and am delighted that the geo-domes will be available for local schools
to enjoy for many generations.”
