The Wiltshire Times is reporting the success of a local primary school [ Sutton Veny ] in reaching the national finals of the 'Climate Week Challenge'. The school’s entry was designed is based on an idea for a Friendly Cow Oxygenator to process methane produced by cattle. It is one of 4 entries in the 7-9 group reaching the finals from over 12000 applicants.
The Times reports the pupils’ class teacher, Charlotte White, as saying:
“Being shortlisted has been a wonderful surprise for the whole school. The challenge provided an inspiring learning experience. The children were very engaged, motivated and excited to be inventors of the future and make a difference to the environment.”
Sounds if the teachers were on the ball as well – and not just at Sutton Veny, judging by the shortlist. Nice to have some good news to report!
