Drayton Pupils Set To show Their Steel!
Local pupils at Drayton Community Infant School were steeling themselves for Thursday 26th February, as they took part in a special steel recycling workshop, hosted by the steel can recycling information bureau, SCRIB.
SCRIB’s Nicola Bennett was invited to the primary school to assist the students in learning more about recycling and sustainability. The workshop has particular relevance for the Norfolk pupils as the region has been found to have one of the best recycling records in the country.
According to an independent report published on behalf of SCRIB, Norfolk polled 7th place in an England-wide league table, which show households most and least committed to recycling their paper, glass, textiles, steel and aluminium.
Nicola, tutored the children in two special workshops, where pupils learnt about how the Llanelli-based steel tinplate company leads the way in sustainability.
Nicola commented: “I was absolutely delighted to be invited to Drayton Community Infant School today to meet the next generation of environmentalists. Sustainability and the environment play an ever more important role in day to day life and will play an even bigger role in generations to come. We believe that educating students is the key to securing a sustainable future and it was fantastic to hear the views of Norfolk’s future voices!”
Mrs Wyatt, Acting Head Teacher at Drayton Community Infant School added: “SCRIB is a hugely influential body that is leading the way in promoting sustainability and recycling in schools and colleges through its education resource. The pupils found the session hugely rewarding.”
