Eco-friendly youngsters from Bromsgrove schools share ideas
7:30am Friday 1st November 2013 in Local
TWO eco-friendly schools in Bromsgrove have joined forces to share ideas how to make them even greener.
Finstall First School, in Carnforth Road, and Fairfield First School, Stourbridge Road, both hold international Green Flag awards, a scheme recognising eco schools.
To achieve the award the schools have worked hard to encourage everyone to care for their environment, and make healthy choices.
The children and staff on the schools’ eco committees have been visiting each other, sharing ideas on sensory gardens and growing areas, and engaging in other eco-friendly activities.
Gaynor Richards, assistant head at Finstall First School, said: “The children on both committees learned a great deal from the visits.
“The children discussed and shared their eco ideas with such confidence.
“We now have plenty of additional ideas to take back to our individual schools to make our environments even more eco-friendly.”
