The plan is to tackle the huge problem of air pollution by one of the most polluted school in London, situated right next to the A4, a 6-lanes carriageway with a flow of up to 100,000 vehicles a day. 

This is what we want to do:

Reinforce the brick wall along the playground so that we can grow our living wall higher and have more chances to stop air pollution coming from the A4.
We want to buy air purifiers to place inside each class. 
Plant more trees. 
Build an edible Playground around the school 

We've already raised more than £75,000 on www.spacehive.com/chiswickoasis to build a living wall along the perimeter of our playground. However the current brick wall is not strong enough to support the weight of a full green screen. In order to fill the whole mesh of top of the brick wall, we must reinforce the original structure... and that costs money too.

The newly refurbished space will also be open to the public, after school hours and week-ends, and will become a site for markets, fairs and other social events).

You can read more about the full project on our website:  www.chiswickoasis.com  

Our campaign has gained support from the whole community, from our local MP and local councillors from opposite side of the political landscape.

Please, help us. This is for our children and their health but it's also for the whole community of Chiswick and beyond as we are hoping this will become a model for many other schools to follow.

I am planning to put up a "blue plaque" next to the green. wall with the date of the inauguration (By the way, I hope I’ll see you all there on the 29th of June) but also I wanted to have another large sign (in wood) with the names of all the sponsors and people who have been instrumental in making this wall a reality.
We have 365 names.
Could you all please take a moment to check whether your name is spelt correctly.
Some of you have been pledging/donating anonymously and unless we are told otherwise you will remain anonymous.

Please notice that all the donations after the December the 15th would not have gone to the green wall, hence your name will not be on the list.

Any issue please contact me ASAP.

THE DEADLINE IS THIS WEDNESDAY THE 12TH OF JUNE

Thanks
Andrea

We've now reached our target on Spacehive to build a green wall. It's now time to concentrate on raising the money to buy some air purifiers as we believe the air inside buildings can be just as polluted as the air outside. A segment from the Jeremy Vine show on Friday the 30th of November 2018, suggests whether roads nears schools should be closed.
