All Saints School win first ever Green Buddy Brierley Forest Cup!
On Tuesday, 5th July 2016 our Year 2 children participated in the first Green Buddy Brierley Cup at Brierley Forest against the Year 2 children from John Davies.
The event was organised by Council Officers, Environmental Volunteers and Local Councillors Lee Anderson and Glenys Maxwell who also donated the ‘cup’. Their aim is to make the event an annual occasion involving more schools next year.
In total, 57 year 2 children were involved in a competition to identify and match photographs of leaves with the correct trees, they were also given a talk about water safety by Gary Barfoot the Brierley Pond Baliff and learnt about how to respect and look after their local environment.
The schools each had a dog as their school mascot and were taught about responsible dog ownership as part of the event.
The children had a picnic lunch and were given ADC pencils and a free pass to a local play centre which were kindly donated by Bizzy Beans.
The Green Buddy Scheme is a new Council initiative that aims to encourage children and young people to get involved in taking positive action to make a difference in their local community by improving the environment through activities such as litter picking, bulb and tree planting.
