18th June 2020 — Middle School winner, Dhevi described how she made her creation, “I took an old box for trainers, some cardboard tubes, a small Rice Krispies box (other cereal boxes may be used!) and some orange tissue paper to make my giraffe bookshelf. It’s quite delicate because it’s only held together with glue from a glue gun. The funniest thing about my bookshelf is that I can still keep my trainers in their box!”

Pre Prep winner, Sohan, used a recycled bottle to make his perfect, pink, piggy bank and Year 2 pupil, Alfie, made an arrow holder from wrapping paper tubes and string.

Year 1 pupil, Juniper, enlisted help from her parents. “My dad cut off the bottom of our old Christmas tree and I went on a treasure hunt around the house with my mum to find some beads and other bits and pieces to make a sparkly front door number.”

Eco Committee teacher, Mrs Slade was thrilled with the results, “The children might not be in school at the moment, but their learning never stops! They never fail to amaze me with their clever ideas and enthusiasm for the very important message of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle!”

St Aubyn's School (Coed 3-13) is a day school in Essex.
