Roots and Shoots Club

3rd June 2023

We are thrilled to introduce you to the Roots & Shoots Club at Braeburn Secondary School. This global initiative, founded by the esteemed conservationist Dr. Jane Goodall, empowers young individuals to become compassionate leaders and environmental stewards. We believe that by nurturing a love for nature and instilling a sense of responsibility towards our planet, we can create a better world for future generations.

The Roots & Shoots Club focuses on three pillars: environmental conservation, animal welfare, and community development. Through engaging activities and hands-on projects, our club members gain a deep understanding of the issues facing our world and develop practical solutions to address them.

Next term, we are excited to launch a special initiative in partnership with Every Living Thing Centre. This dedicated organisation provides care and support for animals in need. Our club members, along with their fellow students, will be spearheading a donation drive to assist the Centre in their invaluable work.

Our plan is to collect essential supplies such as food, blankets, toys, and other items that contribute to the well-being of the animals under their care. Additionally, we aim to raise awareness about responsible pet ownership and the importance of animal welfare in our community.

Together, let's nurture our love for nature, cultivate compassion, and be inspired to be the change-makers of tomorrow.

Thank you for your support.
