More Log Cabins Articles A Flintshire school has picked up a Green Flag Award for its pupils' commitment to the environment.
Buckley's Southdown Primary School received the award in recognition of its "eco-committee" which has helped to establish a woodland area, school garden and pond, the Flintshire Chronicle reported.
Quality garden buildings such as log cabins and summer houses could also be used to improve such conservation areas. According to the newspaper, the school also picked up a Basic Skills Quality Award in recognition of the standard of teaching in core subjects.
"We have a hard working eco-committee at the school who make sure we are up to date with our recycling and that we save water and electricity," said headteacher Andrew Wilkie.
"We also created a woodland area and school garden and pond."
Earlier this week, meanwhile, the Watford Observer reported that an educational garden has been set up at Chater Junior School which consists of a special pond area for use in science and art lessons.
