Pupils get a lesson in sustainability from environmentally conscious cyclists
Environmentally conscious cyclists called in at Halton Holegate Primary School last week as part of their nationwide tour spreading the message of sustainability.

Marika Ramsden and Michael Cutts, who are volunteering for the Sustainability and Environmental Education charity, also led the pupils through a film-making session to capture stories about the school's green practices, when they visited last Monday.

The footage captured may feature in a documentary on the UK's best sustainable schools, which the cycling duo have recorded while visiting 30 schools, throughout their 1,500 mile journey from Land's End to John O'Groats.

Headteacher Mandy Cherry was delighted to participate in the scheme, which she hopes will support the school's on-going environmental agenda.

She said: 'Our students have oozed passion for he project and have been great ambassadors for our school in showcasing the work we have done.

Last summer we took part in the Lincolnshire Show Schools Challenge where the children had to plan and deliver a short presentation about the work we had done.

They did so brilliantly and we had many positive comments back from the public about how fantastically they could talk about our environment.'

The school has implemented a number of green practices from recycling old school equipment to creating wildlife habitats, as part of efforts to ensure pupils do their par in helping the planet.

Marika and Michael have since completed their epic journey after overcoming numerous challegnes including injuries, theft and extreme weather conditions.

The final documentary, which may feature the pupils' own stories, will be premiered at the Sustainable Schools Conference on July 11.
