Headley Park Primary School in Bristol awarded green flag for being environmentally friendly
A SCHOOL in south Bristol has been recognised with an award for being environmentally friendly.
Headley Park Primary has been handed a Green Flag award from an organisation called Eco-Schools.
To win the award, a group of children aged six to 12 worked together to ensure litter was picked up, waste was recycled and water was used carefully.
The children in the school's Eco Team also worked on projects including making a greenhouse out of recycled bottles and are now designing and building their own fruit and vegetable plot.

The school in Headley Lane was assessed by representatives from Eco-Schools during a visit in December.
On the school's green flag certificate, an assessor from the organisation wrote: "The pupils oozed enthusiasm, interest and expertise during the tour of the school.
"They were most proud of the school and their Eco-Schools achievements and recognise the importance of sustainability and the environment and their responsibility to take action.
"Pupils spoke in detail about Eco-Schools projects and were able to answer all questions posed to them; they are clearly fully involved with the actions at Headley Park Primary School.
"It was an infectious, enjoyable visit with an opportunity to feast off the children's knowledge and enthusiasm. Please keep up the hard work."
Teacher Sarah Shelton said: "Winning the award was down to our very eager and hard working eco team and the support from the rest of the school."
Eco-Schools, managed by Keep Britain Tidy, is an international award encouraging schools to be environmentally friendly.
