The E.Y.E project is a sustainable learning project helping local schools and young people within them to make a positive difference to their environment.

Tim Loughton MP is the founder and Patron of the project and was delighted to be at the event, supporting the students whilst they attended different activities and projects throughout the day.

CHS was the only secondary school there along with six primary schools.  We are thrilled to be hosting the event next year.
