THE actions taken by youngsters at Dowson Primary School to protect the environment have been recognised with a Green Flag.
The flags are presented to schools where pupils complete a number of undertakings as part of the Eco Schools Initiative. And, on Friday, Stalybridge and Hyde MP Jonathan Reynolds dropped in to the school, in Hyde, to congratulate them.
Following the visit Mr Reynolds said: “The children at Dowson Primary are clearly engaged with the Eco School Initiative and understand the importance of caring for their environment.
“I was delighted to hear about all the work that is going on at the school and they are obviously learning a great deal in the process.”
During the visit Mr Reynolds took the opportunity to talk to the children who are part of the school council and the eco council.
