Lathallan School pupils send plea to world leaders
Lathallan pupils send their own message to world leaders attending the COP26 climate convention in Glasgow.

A group of 80 senior pupils created the large-scale message by standing together and using their mobile phones for illumination which was captured by one of their fellow pupils flying a drone high above Brotherton Castle.

Headmaster Richard Toley, said: “Lathallan is a school of the environment. Learners are nurtured by nature and as a result, they work hard to look after and maintain the ecosystems around our school grounds and beyond.

"This message, created by students, aims to amplify the message that we must act now, the decision-makers must deliver on climate change for those who will be most impacted – the next generation. There is no time to spare.”

Zoe Jordan, head of science, added: “Our pupils spend a large proportion of their day outside and are immersed in the outdoor environment and nature. Coupled with educating pupils on the importance of protecting our planet, by the time pupils are entering the senior school, students show a lot of respect for the outdoor space, and great enthusiasm to be involved in the Eco club and environmental initiatives.”
