St Paul’s CE Combined School excel in our Eco Centre challenge

St Paul’s Church of England Combined School were invited to see how often they could help the environment during their recent trip to Preston Montford.

Staff at Preston Montford were left impressed at how eco friendly St Paul's pupils were – with a top score of 28 eco actions carried out by one of the pupils throughout their 3 day trip.


Everyone excelled at remembering to turn lights off when they left a room and some remarked how easy a 2 minute shower was. There was even a claim that a 1 minute shower was possible...!
More water was saved with pupils ensuring the taps were turned off so that they didn’t drip. We hope this will help us at Preston Montford reduce our water use by 10% this year.

Lunchtimes showcased St Paul’s eco actions, with each pupil checking they had left no litter after each of our picnics and bringing back fruit peelings to our composting bins. We hope to use the compost to grow vegetables in our new “Incredible Edible” garden.

We are excited that our visitors are so eco aware and are looking forward to more junior schools helping Preston Montford to be more environmentally friendly this coming summer term.
