Blaenymaes Pupils Go For Green!
Budding environmentalists at Blaenymaes Primary School are leading the way to ‘Eco-School’ status and a sustainable future with advice from the steel can recycling information bureau, SCRiB.
Nicola Bennett was invited to the primary school by teacher, Beverly Phillips, to assist the students in learning more about recycling and sustainability. The students who are part of the school’s Eco-committee and School Council were very keen to hear about how the Llanelli-based steel tinplate company leads the way in sustainability as they face the challenge of reducing the environmental impact of their school.
Nicola comments: “I am absolutely delighted to be able to offer help and advice to Blaenymaes Primary as they work towards achieving Eco School status. 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 I’m really looking forward to see what the Blaenymaes pupils achieve!”
Beverly Phillips, teacher at Blaenymaes 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. We have a great relationship with SCRIB and it is fantastic that Nicola could come to our school and offer advice and support to the pupils.”
The Eco-schools programme was developed by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) and is managed in Wales by Keep Wales Tidy.
