Green flag joy for eco nurs­ery school

Rutherglen Reformer - - Intimations - Staff re­porter

A Cam­bus­lang nurs­ery went eco friendly as they cel­e­brated achiev­ing their Eco Schools Green Flag award.

Hol­lytree Nurs­ery were awarded their green flag last month with strong eco projects such as bring your bike to school day, walk to nurs­ery pro­gramme and car­ing for their own nurs­ery pet ham­ster Poppy, all form­ing part of the ser­vices eco school plans.

This was topped off last week with a re­cy­cling fash­ion show, where stu­dents strut­ted their stuff in out­fits made from re­cy­cled ma­te­ri­als.

Eco co- or­di­na­tor Stephanie Miller in­vited all par­ents and chil­dren along on the day dress­ing up in re­cy­cled clothes and ac­ces­sories.

There was a huge re­sponse with lots of par­ents, brother and sis­ters and other fam­ily mem­bers com­ing to watch the chil­dren take part in the out­door event held at the nurs­ery.

Chil­dren had mod­elled their own clothes on a red ‘cat walk’ to mu­sic and cel­e­brated their achieve­ments with a big gar­den party.

The nurs­ery raised over £600 selling tick­ets for the show and man­ager Donna Brown said: “The nurs­ery plan to fur­ther de­velop their out­door space with funds raised and chil­dren are be­ing in­volved in mak­ing choices of re­sources. Well done Hol­lytree!”
