A report on the litter problem at  St. Teilo’s Church in Wales high school

The head of St. Teilos Church in Wales high school, Mr. Timothy Pratt, asked me, as a representative of the school council, to research the issue of litter inside and outside of the school premises and report my findings.

            To do this I used evidence not only from my own observations during my five years of being a pupil at the school, but from the interviews I carried out with people who work and play in the areas affected by this problem. I was asked to write this report since the problem, which had been ongoing for quite a while, had been brought to the attention of the headmaster following several complaints from the neighbours around the school play areas.

 “I live very close to the school and although I have no complaints with the pupils, the litter problem is becoming increasingly evident, and there seems to be nothing being done about it.

          Another place that seemed to be quite badly affected was the top yard (also known as the red gra) and the field.

    This is because the upper shore only gets covered by the sea for <1% of the year which means less water is received by the limpets, and so the wave action isn't as strong as lower down the shore. This means that limpet's desiccation is a major factor affecting the limpets.

  1. Is race and intelligence a justifiable area of research in psychology?

    That is not to imply there is no inherited genetic potential of intelligence. Jensen thought intelligence was genetically fixed and claimed 80% on its heritability. He would have trouble explaining how crystallised intelligence expands throughout the lifespan (Flynn, 1987). In reality the nature nurture components in intelligence are impossible to separate and quantify (Neisser et al, 1996)
