A SCHOOL in Frensham is proud to announce that it has achieved the Eco-Schools Bronze award.

The eco-committee at Edgeborough School has been working on a number of projects at the school site.

These range from trying to eliminate single use plastic from the school site, to reducing food waste through a house competition and looking at ways to reduce air pollution in the school.

After a lot of hard work they have received the bronze award.

But the eco-committee’s work doesn’t end there, as pupils are now focussing on achieving a silver award.

Other initiatives at the school include the installation of solar panels and the launch of a new campaign called the Big Battery Hunt.

The children have been given collection boxes for old batteries and have been learning how important it is to recycle batteries, as well as what happens when people do not.

Edgeborough School’s headmaster Dan Thornburn said: “It’s great to see the children taking ownership of this project.

“They have so many ideas and it’s the school’s job to help facilitate these fantastic initiatives wherever we can.

“It is wonderful to see their energy and enthusiasm for something so important.”

Edgeborough School provides education to youngsters as young as two years old in the nursery, through pre-prep and into the prep school, where they can remain until the age of 13.
