CHILDREN at a city school will be part of a project to help save the environment.

Solent Infants School in Farlington will be part of a big green wave sweeping the UK’s schools next week, as children gear up to showcase their eco-credentials during Green Schools Revolution Week.

Throughout the week The Co-operative is challenging schools to complete a range of sustainability activities each day, ranging from Energy Monday to Fairtrade Friday.

Schools are asked to share their experience with the Green Schools Revolution team for the chance to win prizes, and also bring to life their own eco projects.

The programme offers educational resources and activities on sustainability.

It hopes to inspire the next generation of green pioneers, with free lessons, trips and green activities available to schools.
