Teacher Wins Environment Award
Stamford High School Biology teacher, Mary Cade, won the Peterborough Evening Telegraph’s Environment Award last month, sponsored by Enterprise Peterborough.
During her time at SHS Mrs Cade has been responsible for many green initiatives to make the school more sustainable as well as encouraging the students to take an active role in environmental issues. Some of Mrs Cade’s main initiatives, as mentioned in her nomination, include; introducing recycling bins around the school, the switch off and save stickers, energy audits and the thermometers in classrooms to encourage the use of radiator thermostats. Mrs Cade has also dedicated many hours to the weekly green group and the annual SES-wide Green Week.
Mrs Cade has just retired from Stamford High School after 26 years and she will be continuing her ‘Green’ role as she helps her husband run his charity, SUSTED, which promotes education for sustainability to all ages.
