Eco-warriors at a new city school are celebrating receiving an environmental award.

Akeley Wood School has been presented with a Bronze Environmental Award by Eco-Schools, an international scheme that gives schools a framework to make sustainability a part of school life.

The school’s environmental council, ECO-7, devised and implemented new policies across the school, organising recycling collections and selling organic apple juice using apples from the school’s own orchard to raise money for investment in future environmental efforts.

They are now working towards achieving the Silver award and the ultimate accolade of a Green Flag.
