A video about marine litter produced by Castlebay School pupils has won top prize
in a national competition.
Some 40 schools took part in the contest organised by Community Resources Network
Scotland, a charity which aims to build a stronger community recycling and reuse
The secondary school title went to Barra with pupils’ impressive video which focused
on how waste, particularly plastics, can affect marine life and the ocean.
S2 pupils provided some alternative uses for plastic bottles and demonstrated how
reusing and recycling can make a positive impact on an island by diverting ‘waste’
from the sea.
They devised the theme and collected plastic water bottles to help create a recycling
bin, bird feeder and a beautiful elephant on display in the school.
Their video can be viewed by clicking here.
Joanna MacNeil and Meadow Beaton represented the school at a prize-giving ceremony
The award and £300 prize money was presented by Scottish comedian and radio presenter
Applecross Primary School in the Highlands won the primary school section.
