GREEN flags marked the start of a school’s environmental revolution.
Gosport’s Bridgemary School in Wych Lane has signed up to the Co-Operative Green Schools Revolution scheme.
The project brings environmental activities and studies into the classroom and offers youngsters the chance to go on field trips to farms.
The school launched the project with a visit from Co-Op representatives.
The school’s eco-co-ordinator, Annie Lanzon, said: ‘We signed up when we came back from the summer holidays and it’s a really good idea.
‘My hope is that if the youngsters learn about these things in school then they might take it home with them. It’s about things like switching off lights and taps, looking after animals and watching out for packaging in shops.
‘We already have a garden at the school they look after and we have chickens too.’
Pupils at the school will be able to swap stories and environmentally-friendly tips with other schools who have signed up to the programme.
