Ludwell Primary School Times Article 18 December 2019

Article in The Times 18 December 2019 for the paper’s Christmas Appeal – Pupil power shines through in quest for a better world

Excerpts from the article: “The children of Ludwell Primary School are so enthusiastic about saving the environment that they write notes to their teachers if they catch them leaving a light on or forgetting to turn off their laptops.

Their campaigning zeal for conserving electricity comes from regular assemblies about creating a healthy planet. If they need reminding of how their small Wiltshire village school is doing its bit to fight climate change, all they need do is look up a roof, which is covered in solar panels.”

The newspaper is supporting Possible, a charity that brings people together to combat climate change. The charity gave Ludwell Primary School the tools, guidance and strategies to raise the funds needed for 36 solar panels in a period of nine months in 2011-12.

Jennie White, Headteacher, says “the school’s eco-committee meets every two weeks and will decide what they want to do. This term they have made bug hotels and bird feeders. They have also introduced a plastic-free lunchbox scheme. Every child gets a point for every day they don’t have a single-use plastic in their lunchbox.”
