On May 1st 8 year 10 Geography students went to Seagate for an ‘Environmental Awareness day’. They participated in a range of workshops with pupils from St. Cecilia’s and Lisneal...
The workshops focussed on how to protect the environment, reducing our carbon footprint and how to save money. We learned how little resources can go such a long way if people make small changes to their lives. We also learned about Seagate and how careful workers had to be handling the materials they use. We were given a tour around Seagate and the clean rooms; one clean room in Seagate is 100 times cleaner than a hospital operating room. We were told the four r’s in Seagate (reduce, reuse, recycle and repair.) The afternoon was very enjoyable and was helpful in how we can help protect the environment; it also may have given some of us a career choice in life.

“The trip was very good. I think the best station was the dress up station because you got to do something active. I found it had useful information both for Geography and Technology; Geography because of the waste and the care for the environment but also Technology because of the machines and the wafers."
