Pupils rewarded for environmental efforts
Children at a Bath school have been given an award for its environmental work.
The Paragon School has been presented with the Eco Schools Silver Award, part of a national environmental programme recognising efforts towards sustainability.
Children, staff and parents at the Lyncombe Vale school have been working towards the accolade for the past two years.
Former pupil Oscar Brookes, now at the Paragon's sister senior school, Prior Park College, has presented some thought-provoking assemblies about rainforest destruction, while environmental topics such as climate change are integrated into the curriculum.
