Primary schools in climate change triumph
2:30pm Wednesday 1st June 2011
I was delighted to be asked by Warrington Borough Council to give a talk about worm composting to pupils from Bewsey Lodge Primary School and present them with a certificate. It was not long after my talk that they were enjoying what many kids enjoy, exploring nature and the life found in the soil!
TWO primary schools have triumphed in a climate awareness challenge set by the council.
Schools across the area were asked to come up with green ideas to save or make money.
Bewsey Lodge Primary and Sankey Valley St James Primary ran out winners.
Ideas included Bewsey’s entry of eco-warriors who gave advice in school and the community.
Their prize was a visit from George Pilkington from Nurturing Nature who delivered a session with the children about worms and compost.
Sankey Valley St James received an environmental education session with theWarrington Borough Council rangers and runners up at Burtonwood Community Primary received a family swimming pass each.
