Young eco warriors at a school are celebrating after once again scooping a green accolade.

Abbot’s Hall Primary, in Stowmarket, received the Eco Schools Green Flag Award for the second time - after previously winning it more than two years ago.

It follows the hard work of the school’s pupil-led eco-committee which assesses the environmental performance of Abbot’s Hall and plans a way forward.

For the last two years, they have focussed on litter, waste, energy, the school grounds, global citizenship and transport.

The school has reduced the amount of paper it uses, set up a daily walking bus, installed solar panels on its roof, fund-raised to buy an area of rainforest and taken part in the Anglia in Bloom contest.

It has also started building a plastic bottle greenhouse.

The Green Flag is externally assessed by Keep Britain Tidy volunteers.
