Con­nel young­sters all smiles as their hard work re­warded

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

YOUNG eco-war­riors at Achaleven Pri­mary in Con­nel are fly­ing the flag for sav­ing the planet, writes Sandy Neil.

On their last day of term pupils re­ceived their sixth green flag, the high­est ac­co­lade awarded by Eco- Schools, in recog­ni­tion of their ef­forts to ‘keep Scot­land beau­ti­ful’.

Through­out the year they have picked up lit­ter in the vil­lage, de­signed posters to dis­cour­age dog-foul­ing, and learned how to keep Dun­staffnage beach, and oth­ers around Scot­land, free from washed up rub­bish.

In the same week, the chil­dren also won a Fair­trade Fair-Achiever award for host­ing a fair trade break­fast.
