PUPILS from eight Solihull schools have been honoured this week for their dedication to tackling climate change.
The ‘your future Solihull’ primary school event took place in the council chamber and celebrated the efforts of youngsters to be more sustainable.
The students enjoyed a performance from an award-winning local theatre group, which told the take of Mother Earth, who was unwell and in hospital.
Pupils were asked what could be done to care for her.
Other activities saw the students write poems detailing what they were doing at school to take care of the environment, including a walk to school campaign, switch off fortnight, planting trees, litter picking, and making a compost heap.
And the day ended with the children receiving Your Future Solihull certificates to mark their achievements.
Solihull mayor Coun Diana Holl-Allen MBE, said: “It was a privilege to hear the students read out their poems, bringing to life all of the fantastic contributions they are doing to look after our planet.
“The event was a brilliant opportunity for the children to immerse themselves in the art of performance and be encouraged by the theatre group to express their passion for the environment so eloquently.”
