Pupils at Wilby explore how human activity is damaging the planet

Youngsters passionate about their planet and its future held a ‘green’ evening to share what they had learned and educate others.

Pupils at Wilby CEVC Primary School have spent the past half-term exploring how human activity is damaging the environment.

Their ‘green’ evening on Wednesday provided an exploration of the issues and a cry to Save our Planet presented through dance, rap and a fashion show of re-cycled outfits produced by the children. The eye-catching and attention-grabbing performances showed how effectively issues can be communicated through the arts.

Arts co-ordinator Rachael Pickess said: “We shouldn’t underestimate our children – they do care passionately about their world and the future of our planet. Their message for the evening was so powerful because they were able to convey it so creatively through different art forms. This type of self-expression is so important.”
