AN ILKESTON infants school has hoisted a green flag awarded to it for its green credentials.

Pupils at Chaucer Infants School in Cantelupe Road won the award in 2009 but it was presented on Friday.

Nursery teacher and eco co-ordinator Christine Wojtania said: “It’s been a lot of hard work but everyone has enjoyed it and you can see the children now are much more aware of the environment and love to get outdoors.”

The school is keeping up its eco activities by building a bird hide for watching feathered friends and a wormery so kids can get their hands dirty whilst studying mini beasts.
