GREEN-fingered pupils have won a national competition for their eco-friendly efforts.

Pupils from Royd Nursery Infant School in Deepcar scooped The Co-operative’s Green Schools Revolution award.

They won a commemmorative plaque and £3,000 - which will be used to buy new waterproofs and wellies for developing fruit and vegetable patches. The school has hosted awareness weeks and runs after school clubs.

Thrilled headteacher Sarah Coates said: “Our dedication and commitment at the school to be eco friendly is part of the year two curriculum.”
