The inaugural event was held on November 14 and featured student service projects such as the Clean Plate Challenge which ran over two weeks in the Dining Hall and resulted in 20% less food waste across all three schools. The OWYE initiative will continue throughout the academic year with events to raise awareness about sustainability in line with the school's commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
