I was joined by School Governor, Calum Higgins, and Councillor Tina Higgins on a visit to Ysgol Tycroes where students shared their work on Climate Challenge Cymru.
It was a pleasure to also be able to tour the school’s impressive range of environmental facilities.
The school’s work on their Climate Challenge Cymru project is part of the school’s long-term commitment to action and advocacy on environmental issues. As part of their work, year 6 students have chosen to focus on local produce and plastic waste and have written to local councillors to suggest sustainable solutions to problems they have encountered in the classroom.
Councillor Higgins was particularly impressed with their strong arguments for reduce the amount of plastic used in school milk and has invited the students to present their arguments and ideas to environmental officials at Carmarthenshire Council.
These eco-warriors are on a mission – watch this space!
