Tregollis school pupils go green
Tregollis Primary School pupils have gone green with the help of a national energy supplier and a Climate Cops Academy.
More than 60 students, aged eight to eleven, took part in several energy saving activities during a climate change day run by Npower.
Activities included information about saving energy in home and at school and pupils used a thermal imaging camera to see the effects of insulation.
Head Teacher Matt Middlemore said: “The children really enjoyed the day; it taught them about climate change and saving energy in a fun, engaging way.

“They’ve learnt lots of simple ways to save energy ay school and at home that will make a big difference to the environment.”
Tregollis Primary School is just one of four schools in Cornwall to participate in the Climate Cops Academy, which has engaged over 230 pupils throughout the county.
Clare McDougall, head of community and education at Npower, said: “It’s wonderful that our Climate Cops programme continues to help schools across the UK to become greener and more sustainable and inspires young people to get involved in energy saving.”
Last year saw the Climate Cops programme engage more than 8,000 children, a fraction of the 60,000 students that have attended since its launch in November 2007.
Teachers can visit the Npower website to order their free copy of the Climate Cops resources to help bring their pupils education for sustainable development, science, geography and citizenship lessons for life.
