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 this month.
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.”
