Eco-Team makes a world of difference

We were thrilled to receive this feedback from Formech Inspire, based on their work with our student Eco Team here at FHS and their work to help transform the lives of those living in Eswatini in Africa. We look forward to sharing more details of our Eco Team's work in the next newsletter.

Dear Eco Team,

Firstly, let us say how much of an adventure it has been working with you. It was such a privilege to be introduced to a group of young people who are so devoted to the protection of our planet, our natural world, and everyone who lives within it. You are a very rare find, and so if there’s one thing we want you to remember and to take away from this experience, let it be that you truly are an inspiration to others. We were certainly inspired by you.

Thank you so much for all of your hard work, dedication, enthusiasm, and passion. You put so much into this project, and what you delivered was very impressive. What was most special about it was your approach to the task at hand, and that it was one that celebrated team work, the ability to speak, listen, and make decisions together. You showed great creativity, maturity and responsibility, which was key to your success.

The students in The Kingdom of eSwatini appreciated your video messages so much, and were very excited to watch them, and reply to you. There are not many students in the UK who can say that they have global links with students in Africa, and who have had an opportunity to speak to them directly. You developed an agricultural solution which can help feed a small family for many years to come, and now that we have a blueprint as to how this can be done, students in eSwatini can share your ideas, use them, and help support their own families using simple materials in a very small space.

You have given us many fond memories, and we hope that you too will remember this experience for a long time to come. You provided such a warm welcome for us, and never failed to make us smile. Every time we left Fairfield High School, we came away with big smiles on our faces and feeling that we had found a group of young people who really cared about making the world a better place.

We are looking forward to sharing your video with you soon, which we hope we can count on you to share to all of your friends and family. The more people who see the video, the wider your positive message spreads, and the more people will start thinking the way you do, with sustainability and the environment at heart.

Thank you so much, again and again. Working with you was such a great experience, and you made it so much fun for us too. Wishing all of you a very Happy New Year, and the very best for you and your families in 2019.

From your friends at Formech Inspire,

Stephen and Rachel.
