THE FOREST SCHOOL KNARESBOROUGH - FLYING DUCHY PIZZA DELIVERY PROJECT

Molly, a Year 10 student at The Forest School in Knaresborough, and her family have been keeping busy during the lockdown by making and delivering delicious pizzas to vulnerable people.

It all started on VE day with a random act of kindness making (and where needed, safely delivering) 10 pizzas each week, to vulnerable friends and family. Friday night will be pizza night and different people/families will be treated each week.

Molly's dad devised a menu of 6 pizzas. Molly helped make dough, fold the boxes, label and write orders on them.

The first pizza went to a family friend , whose wife tragically died just before the virus came. She was a very kind lady and Molly realised this would be a very lonely time for him. He sent the most wonderful message of thanks.

The pizzas are free of charge, but many people are wanting to make a donation and so far Molly has collected £50 in donations for The Forest School who are saving to provide new playground equipment.

Thanks Molly you are an inspiration to us all.

Creative Ripon Grammar students create new eco-friendly board game

YOUNG entrepreneurs at Ripon Grammar School are developing an innovative new eco-friendly board game called Planet Saver, made from recycled canvas.

Young Enterprise team project leader Samyuktha Dasarathi explained how they came up with the idea as a way of attracting children away from screens and encouraging them to spend more time together with family and friends.

Planet Saver has four zones, like Ludo, each representing the different environments of beach, forest, countryside and city. Each player starts with one card which has three hazards associated with the zone, for example litter in the city.

“The aim of the game is to move around the board and solve these hazards,” says Samyuktha.

‘Bandages’ dotted around the board enable players to do this by, for example, picking up a net to collect rubbish in the sea – while avoiding additional hazards - with the first person to reach the centre winning.

They started developing their game in September: “Our unique selling point is the boards are made from recycled canvas, which is sustainable.”

Printing the game onto cloth is cheaper than card: “And, much like Lego, our target audience ranges from the age of eight years old to 108 years of age.

“We plan to go to local primary schools to play the game with younger children to introduce them to it.”

She concluded: “We hope our game helps towards ensuring everyone is as educated and as passionate about the environment as we are as a team.”
