PUPILS from Mallard Primary School have been awarded Bronze and Silver Active Student Awards from Doncaster Council for their commitment to carbon reduction.
The Active Students Award Scheme is a carbon reduction initiative which allows youngsters to show their hard work in reducing their energy use in the school.
The Bronze Certificate was awarded for the work of energy monitors – pupils who ensure equipment is turned off when it is not needed.
They also help to raise awareness of energy use. The second certificate was the Active Students Silver Certificate, which follows an assessment in October to measure how much electricity the school had consumed over a year.
The survey revealed the school had reduced its use of gas and electricity for the third year running.
Headteacher Theresa Siverns said: “The pupils have really shown their enthusiasm for helping to save energy and we are very proud of their achievements.”
