CHILDREN at Eastlands Primary School have been hard at work to improve their surroundings.
On November 28, the school’s Eco Club planted a mixture of holly, wild rose and dogwood tree saplings as part of their mission to improve the school grounds and create new habitats for wildlife. The club also promotes causes such as saving energy, recycling and litter picking as well as organising the ‘Switch Off’ campaign at the school. Eastlands currently holds a Eco Schools Silver award.
Club leader Jo Crinigan said: “The children thoroughly enjoyed the tree planting and are very enthusiastic about our Eco schools topics.”
