Conserving wildlife at school

CHILDREN in Portbury have developed their very own conservation area at the village school.

Youngsters at St Mary’s Primary School have worked with an environmental expert to create a pond, seating area and an impressive teepee made from hazel and clay.

The teepee is used for story telling and it is now hoped the area will become a flourishing habitat for wildlife, providing a great resource for outdoor learning.
