Eco kids are as WISE as owls
Eco-friendly children at Cantrell Primary School in Bulwell have been rewarded for getting WISE to ways of protecting the environment

For the school on Cantrell Road is the latest to complete the Waste In Schools Education (WISE) programme.

Initiatives undertaken in school include recycling all print cartridges, stamps and batteries and setting up an eco club.

Youngsters have taken part in paper-making and creative composting and have even been taught how to make sure the contents of their lunchboxes come from sustainable sources.

All the activities have been promoted through the school newsletter.

To mark their achievement, children and staff were presented with a certificate from Nottingham City Councils sustainability education officer.

Coun Alan Clark (Lab), who is a Bulwell member of the city council and lead member for energy and sustainability, said:

The WISE project gives pupils the chance to become engaged in helping to keep Nottingham as the UKs cleanest big city and to follow best practice in waste management.

Everyone at Cantrell Primary School has worked hard to achieve the objectives set out in the WISE project and has made a real difference to their environment.

I hope they continue to work hard and complete the targets set out in their action plan. Hopefully, they will also encourage more of their friends and family to be more environmentally aware.
