Children spread the recycling message

Children at Anston Park Junior School, Rotherham, have been learning all about recycling and are keen to spread their knowledge.


The winning entries with their creators

Working on a Taking Home Action on Waste (THAW) project, the children designed and used questionnaires to gather information about how people recycle at home.

A poster competition was held for years three and four, and winning entries chosen by the school’s older children will be displayed around the school and hopefully within the wider community as well.

THAW education officer Kay Whitfield said the children are “already keen recyclers and recycle all their paper in school. Now they are taking that message home and would like everyone in their area to join in.”
