Eco award for Hatfield school
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.
