Youngsters have been busy recycling at St John’s Primary to help raise funds for Water Aid.
The children were split into five groups, which they have turned into companies with the purpose of raising as much money as possible for the charity. These companies then recycled different items ranging from clothes, shoes, disks, inkjet cartridges and mobile phones.
As part of planning for the day pupils made TV adverts using green screen technology as well as making a website to advertise the event.
Water Aid was chosen as they wanted to help children like those in Rwamkoma in Tanzania where there is no well meaning children have to walk miles to get water. The academy has a link with the parish of Rwamkoma through St John’s Church. The children set the target of just over £250.
Class teacher Karl Roberts, said: “The children have really enjoyed the project, especially the adverts and the website. But, importantly they have begun to reflect on other people, who are not as lucky and cannot just turn on the tap to get safe water.”
WaterAid provides clean water for the world’s poorest countries.
