Pupils at a King’s Lynn primary school are celebrating being named West Norfolk Climate Champions.
Eastgate Primary in King’s Lynn won the Living For The Future competition which encouraged young people to design ideas to make cities, towns and villages greener.
The winning entry was a model made out of reused items that included a wind and tree farm, along with solar panels and fishpond to filtrate water.
In second place was South Wootton Junior with a plea to stop cutting trees down and designed a magical robot dog called Bark, powered by the sun, who can plant saplings to help replace trees.
Third place was won by Denver Primary who created a model eco car that is powered by litter and methane gas.
The Mayor of King’s Lynn, Margaret Wilkinson, and Michael de Whalley, the borough councillor responsible for climate change and biodiversity, presented the winning students with their certificates and prize.
Mr de Whalley said: “I would like to thank all the students and teachers for the time, energy and effort put into their proposals. The team-work, hard-work, enthusiasm, creativity and positivity displayed are the right way to go about solving big problems.
“Younger people have the power to change the way all of us think and do things and they can help make a difference. I hope they can all keep up the good work.”
20 local schools signed up to take part in the project which was paid for by the borough council working in partnership with 8billionideas, an educational learning company.
