Tech firm backs Green School Awards

By KentOnline reporter

A Kent tech firm is the latest business to back an awards scheme celebrating school environmental projects.

The Green School Awards are open to primary and secondary schools across the South-East. They celebrate best practice in six categories: green travel and road safety; energy conservation; nature conservation; health and well-being; recycling; and – for the first time this year – air pollution.

One of the judging organisations is Canterbury firm ADM Computing, and the company’s managing director, Adrian Bryant, said: “We are very proud to be supporting the KM Charity Team Green School Awards.

“We all live on this planet, the resources are finite and kids need to learn about these things.

“We are really keen to support schools introducing into their activities nature conservation and awareness.”

ADM designs, installs and supports IT infrastructure for schools and businesses.

Simon Dolby, chief executive of awards organiser the KM Charity Team, said: “It’s great to have ADM Computing on board for the Green School Awards.

“With its use of green energy, encouragement of staff using green travel to get to work, and support for forest schools in China, ADM is a company that really takes its environmental responsibilities seriously.

“So it really makes the perfect partner for this initiative.

“Now I would urge schools taking the lead in addressing green issues to enter the awards so the rest of the community can learn from their example.”

Primary and secondary schools across the South-East have until December 7 to submit entries.

Schemes eligible for nomination might include walking buses, school gardens, and air-monitoring and energy-reduction initiatives.

In addition to ADM Computing, the awards’ judges are key partner Golding Vision, and Ashford International Hotel, EduKit, NCS Technology, Loop CR, Kidzania and Kent and Medway councils.
