A Denbighshire school has been praised for its efforts to ‘go green’ by Plaid Cymru’s North Wales AM Llyr Gruffydd.
Ysgol Frongoch in Denbigh has its own eco-club promoting environmental issues under the guidance of teacher Adele Gregory.
Mr Gruffydd was shown round the school by head boy Frank Litwinski and Caitlin Moore, the school’s eco rep. The school’s eco-club co-ordinates litterpicks, gardening and tends the school’s unique Denbigh plum trees.
Mr Gruffydd heard them discuss the other ways in which they help the environment, including helping to fund tree planting in Africa. An area twice the size of Wales has been planted through schemes supported by schools and organisation.
He said: “The school is clearly taking its responsibilities to ‘go green’ seriously and it was great to meet teachers and pupils during my visit. I have to say I was really impressed by the knowledge and passion both Frank and Caitlin displayed while showing me around the school. They have taken on board a lot of the work being done by The Size of Wales campaign and Ysgol Frongoch can be very proud of its contribution to date.”
