In March, Boothville Primary School in Northampton organised their first Eco Day to help pupils learn about the environment and how to respect and care for it.
Porsche Centre Silverstone sent four volunteers to the school to help with the project. Charlotte, Emma, Jordan and Simon got stuck in straight away digging out the chicken coop. The surrounding trees were cut back and the ground levelled out to make more room for the chickens to roam. Finally, they covered the ground in bark for the chickens to scratch and dig around in. The team then set about building a storage unit for Year Two to keep the chicken's bedding in. Fortunately Centre Principal Karl Cinnamond arrived at that point and helped the team to get the storage unit together!
The project also included planting food and decorative plants in various areas around the school. Porsche Centre Silverstone donated a huge number of plants - enough to fill a Panamera - to the school so that pupils can learn to care for them and understand what makes them thrive. The potted plants, shrubs and herbs will flower at different times of the year giving a constantly changing landscape for the children to enjoy.
Porsche is committed to producing more environmentally friendly options throughout the model range. Learn more about how Porsche is at the forefront of environmental motoring.
*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at
. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
