Ascham boarders embrace the dark for Earth Hour

Earth Hour is the world’s largest grassroots movement for climate change action. Millions of people in over 180 countries take part in Earth Hour by switching off their lights as a symbolic gesture to show that our planet needs stronger action on climate change.

Ascham Boarding Coordinator Tenika O’Brien reports on the evening that Earth Hour came to Ascham boarding.

‘On Saturday night 24 February Ascham boarders made their contribution to the annual global Earth Hour initiative. From 8–9pm all electronic devices and boarding house lights were switched off. The girls gathered in the Raine House common room where they enjoyed storytelling, games and a variety of other candle-lit activities.

The girls were treated to hot chocolates, marshmallows, popcorn, TimTams and various other delicious snacks! The festivities finished with a big game of hide-and-go-seek in the dark—there were some very creative hiding places!

There was plenty of laughter, fun and enjoyment, with all the girls appreciating this wonderful night of bonding. Our Earth Hour evening was a great way to take part in an important global event within our little boarding community.’
