GREEN was the colour of the day at a Stourport school as they had bags of fun celebrating their work on sustainablility and environmental issues.

Youngsters at Burlish Park Primary School dressed in the colour and signed up to fund-raising and recycling project Phil the Bag.

They recycled 620 kg of clothes and textiles as part of the project, which aims to tackle textile waste and raised £310 for the school.

Lynda Williams, eco school co-ordinator, said: “Our pupils had a great day learning about sustainablilty and how this links to eco schools.

“The day started with an assembly where we all came together and sang our recycling song accompanied by the school and each year group looked at different issues relating to sustainability “The day finished with a green gang gardening afternoon activity, which was part of the Royal Horticultural Society campaign to get grown-ups growing in school.

“Parents and children weeded and planted flower beds, with bulbs and flowers to improve the school grounds. A great Greenday was had by all.”
