January 28th, 2013
Edwalton Primary School has been presented with a cheque for £1,000 following its success in Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust’s annual Green Guardians Awards.
Representatives from Chinook Energy, which supported the award, and Notts Wildlife Trust gave the school with the prize money at an assembly last week. The school won the “Protecting the Environment through Innovation” Award for its new Eco Hub which helps other schools wanting to develop their sustainability work. They run training events and support trainee teachers in learning about environmental education.
Professor David Bellamy said: “Their school has a three-acre farm woodland – what more can you need to learn how to put the world and you back into working order” The prize money is to be invested in the school’s environmental work.
