Spalding students struck gold and green ten years ago
Dedicated Duke of Edinburgh Award students picked up their certificates at a ceremony in Spalding 10 years ago.
Eleven students in the South Holland group achieved the top gold award– two from Spalding Grammar School and nine from the town’s High School.
Pupils from both schools and Crowland’s St Guthlac School achieved silver and bronze awards, collecting their certificates from Dr Cath Hamblin at a presentation at Spalding Grammar School.
Young gardeners at Spalding’s Monkshouse Primary were rewarded for helping to make their school eco-friendly ten years ago.
The school had collected its Green Flag Eco-Schools status while also being commended for its efforts by East Midlands in Bloom.
Teaching assistant Kay Green said: “It’s a really huge achievement. Not many schools in Lincolnshire have got it.”
