Kids go green
Children at Blyth School have been going green this month all in the name of climate change

The primary school has embarked on a month-long project a part of Climate Week to £Go Green£ and be more energy efficient.

Over the past few weeks the children have been taking part in a range of activities from recycling more and cut carbon emissions by walking to school to making sculptures, bird feeders and board games out of recycled materials.

The project came about after Blyth School were named as the winners of Bassetlaw Council£s Schools Go Green Project, where schools from across the district were invited to submit their ideas of how they can be more environmentally friendly and energy efficient at home.

Schools Go Green judge and portfolio holder for housing Coun Alan Rhodes was on hand to help launch the project at Blyth School this week and Climate Week gives everyone the chance to share ideas and inspire others about climate change.

£The Primary School of St Mary and St Martins, Blyth has illustrated a strong commitment to sustainability through the Schools Go Green Project, and the Council are delighted to have worked with both Mrs Piddington and Mrs Heeley and all the pupils on such an important issue,£ he said.

As part of their prize for winning the competition, the pupils enjoyed taking part in an Energy Day courtesy of Marches Energy Agency and were presented with goodie bags provided by A1 Housing.

Climate Week is Britain£s biggest climate change campaign, inspiring a new wave of action to create a sustainable future.
