Pupils at Hydesville Tower School are embarking on Meat Free Tuesdays to try and have healthier diets, save animals, and protect the planet.
The idea was thought up by Year 5 pupil Shaan Dulay and was supported by his fellow pupils on the Eco-Committee.
Headmaster Mr Honey said: “We have been delighted by the pupil-led initiative to start an Eco-Committee. There was an immediate desire for many children to be involved, and they have been supporting a range of issues including litter picking, reducing plastic waste and looking at our carbon footprint.
"Whilst electric minibuses and solar panels may be a little way off, we have keen pupils putting the important issues at the forefront of our discussions.
“Shaan spoke with our Catering Manager, Mr Long, and me regarding the Meat-Free initiative.
"We were happy to make the changes and see how the pupils responded. If we reduce the dependency on animal farming for one day a week, the potential impact on the global climate could be significant.”
Their first Meat Free Day took place this week and staff believe it was a huge success. It will be trialled every Tuesday for the next four weeks.
