School celebrates green win
School pupils were rewarded for their dedication to ecofriendly behaviour at an awards ceremony last Thursday.
Bodsham CEP School was named Best Environmental School at The Green School Awards. Twenty four schools across Kent were recognised at the event for schemes that promote green travel to school, recycling and sustainability, nature conservation and energy conservation.
Simon Dolby, chief executive of the KM Charity Team, said judges saw some great environmental initiatives that were inspiring and empowered pupils to strive for a better future for their communities.
One of the day’s winners was Bodsham CEP School, Ashford which claimed the Best Environmental School honour.
Winning schools demonstrated best practice in educating students about the environment and encouraging them to adopt eco-friendly initiatives. Pupils, teachers and parents from infant, primary and secondary schools were invited to the award presentation staged at Canterbury Cricket Club.
A detailed overview of all the winning schemes will be published in a best practice booklet and available to download at http://www. kmcharityteam.co.uk/schools/ green-school-awards/
