Preshute primary school celebrates eco award

Preshute Primary School in Manton this week celebrated gaining a bronze ‘Ecoschool’ award for environmental performance.

An eco-council of pupils from the school, led by assistant head teacher Kelandie Ash, put together an environmental management plan looking at issues such as energy use, playground tidiness and sustainable transport.

The pupils then helped to raise awareness throughout the school by designing posters and displays to help meet their targets.

Celia Hicks, head of Preshute School said: “We are really pleased that the pupils have been able to contribute to creating a more sustainable future. The eco-council has learned a great deal from the process that we hope they can now pass on to others“.

Preshute used the plan to secure assistance from the North Wessex Downs AONB Sustainable Development Fund and Wiltshire Council to purchase composting bins for their nature garden and install bike racks to encourage more pupils to cycle.

The Mayor of Marlborough, Alexander Kirk-Wilson, himself a keen cyclist, officially unveiled the improvements at a ceremony on Tuesday morning.
