Wolfscastle strikes Gold

Wolfscastle has become the eighth school in Pembrokeshire to be awarded a Gold Sustainable Schools Award.

The primary joined a select group of County gold winners last week.

At a special Assembly marking the measures the school has taken to reduce its global footprint, pupils were presented with their award - a wooden oak tree - by Councillor Huw George, Cabinet Member for Children and Young People.

Over recent months the youngsters have been investigating ways to save paper and reduce the amount of rubbish thrown away in the school at the same time encouraging their local community to recycle more and waste less.

Transport issues have also come under their spotlight as pupils learnt about food miles and the need to use cars less.

The Sustainable Schools Award recognises efforts to improve the local environment and quality of life now without damaging the planet for future generations.
