Porthcawl Pupils Set To Show Their Steel!
Local pupils at Newton Primary School are steeling themselves for Tuesday 10th February, as they take part in a special steel recycling workshop, hosted by Corus’ education unit, SCRiB.
SCRiB’s Nicola Bennett has been invited to the primary school by the Head Teacher, Nick Naish, to assist the students in learning more about recycling and sustainability. The workshop has particular relevance for the Year 4 pupils as they will learn about the role that science plays in industry.
Nicola, will be tutoring the children in two special workshops, where pupils will learn about how the Llanelli-based steel tinplate company leads the way in sustainability.
Nicola comments: “I am absolutely delighted to be invited to Newton Primary on Tuesday 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 I’m really looking forward to hearing the views of Porthcawl’s future voices!”
Nick Naish, Head Teacher at Newton Primary added: “Corus is a hugely influential business that is leading the way in promoting sustainability and recycling in schools and colleges through its SCRiB education resource. I know that the pupils will find the session hugely rewarding.”
Nicola and the pupils will be available for interviews and photographs between 12:00 and 12:15 this Tuesday 10th February, at Newton Primary School, Porthcawl.
