Daventry school is ready to go green

PUPILS at Falconer’s Hill Junior School have joined a ‘Green Revolution’ to help save the environment.

The youngsters raised a flag at the school last week after enrolling on the programme, which is run by Co-operative.

The programme is a new green initiative aimed at bringing practical environmental studies to life inside and outside of the classroom.

The Co-operative’s Green Schools Revolution is available free to all schools in the UK.

The programme brings together a host of learning materials and practical opportunities, such as free green school trips to help teachers, parents and children take care of the environment in a fun and active way.

Paul Cranfield, regional secretary for The Co-operative in the central and Eastern region, said: “There is clearly a huge appetite for learning about eco-issues among children and our Green Schools Revolution programme is designed to satisfy that.

“It is packed with free school trip ideas, lots of lesson plans, and green activity ideas to do at home too.

“We want to ensure the next generation are better equipped for the challenge of building a more sustainable world. But what’s more, we want them to take the message home to their parents and communities, to grow the Green Schools Revolution even further.”
