Primary teacher showing pupils how to be green

30/08/2012 Joanna
A school in Buckinghamshire is leading the way in teaching children about caring for the environment.

Little Kingshill Combined Primary School has Green Flag Eco School status and its dedicated staff, such as primary teacher Helen McCammond, are working hard to instil important values in their pupils.

Each year, Little Kingshill holds an Eco Week dedicated to all things green and Ms McCammond told the Guardian that it is dedicated to "inspiring our children to think of the world in which they live".

She also runs the school's Environment Club which teaches the children to value the things around them.

"It's about getting them to think about the school environment, respecting it and, ultimately, taking ownership of it," she told the news provider.
Green activities have also proven to be a great way of getting all the children working together towards a shared goal.

Any establishment can apply to become an Eco School, with Green Flag status awarded to those achieving "excellence in the field of environmental activity".
