YELLOW fever hit a school hall as pupils found a novel way of going green.
Year 3 pupils at St Anthony’s Roman Catholic Primary, High Street, Saltney took part in the Yellow Woods Challenge, a campaign aiming to recycle old Yellow Pages directories and save landfill.
Run by Yellow Pages in conjunction with the Woodland Trust, the challenge aims to educate children about the environment.
Year 3 teacher Eirian Freeman said: “They are recycled into things like animal bedding and egg boxes. The whole school took part and collected 252.
“It forms part of our eco schools challenge and part of the competition is to make a sculpture.
“Plenty of ideas have been going around for what to make – from a sunflower to a yellow school bus.
“It’s always lots of fun. There’ll be step ladders and stacks of yellow pages.
“It encourages recycling and that things can be used again.”
Yellow Pages is offering £600 in cash prizes to schools that recycle the most old directories per pupil.
For every pound they award to schools for recycling old directories. Yellow Pages will give a matching pound to the Woodland Trust.
