PUPILS at a school in Gosport are doing their bit for the environment with eco-friendly initiatives throughout the term.
The youngsters at Bridgemary Community Sports College have taken on board their ‘green strategy’ which ranges from looking after the school’s chickens, recycling everything from cans to mobile phones and selling vegetables grown on site.
They also took part in a non-uniform day in exchange for donating clothing to the Salvation Army, DVDs to the British Heart Foundation or old mobile phones to raise funds for more eco projects.
Sophie Cooledge and Michaela Gregory, both 13, helped collect mobile phones.
Sophie said: ‘It is fun to recycle as it provides us with opportunities to help save the planet. If we each do a little recycling then a lot can be achieved.’
Headteacher Richard Carlyle said: ‘Areas within the college have been redesigned by the students to accommodate this work.
‘We have livestock areas, allotments and flower beds as well as eco collection points and healthy eating displays.’
