CHILDREN from Long Sutton Primary School are playing a big part in the school’s drive to go green.

Dubbed ‘energy enforcers’, the pupils are actively involved in the school’s energy generation and waste recycling and hope to be further recognised in the Schools’ Eco-Awards Scheme.

Last year they won bronze and now they hope to add silver.

Teacher Sarah Stewart said governors agreed in December to install 9.66 KWH solar photovoltaic panels in the roof – this will not only help the environment but allow the school to earn cash by claiming the Government’s “Feed-In Tariff”.

Now the panels are in, pupils are hands on with the project and have taken their first energy readings from the solar installation.
