Eco award for Hatfield school
PUBLISHED: 06:50 14 February 2011
ECO-CONSCIOUS kids at a primary school have been rewarded with a prestigious prize.
The Ryde School, in Pleasant Rise, Hatfield, has gained a Green Flag Eco Schools Award.
The internationally-recognised gong praises “continued excellence in improving the environmental performance of the school and wider community”.
Pupils worked on a variety of green schemes including composting, paper recycling, bikeability programmes and gardening.
They have built a bug hotel in the wild area which is a habitat for insects and bugs.
And two walking buses operate where the children walk to school in a convoy supervised by trained helpers.
Head Janet Goddard said: “The school was delighted to receive the Green Flag award from MP Grant Shapps at a special assembly.”
