Coylton Primary School win COP26 poster competition

Coylton PS COP26 poster 400 x 400

Coylton Primary School has won a prestigious poster competition, by highlighting some of the actions we can all take to help tackle climate change.

The competition, which was run by Police Scotland and Keep Scotland Beautiful, was inspired by the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow.

ECO schools were asked to highlight the importance of reducing, recycling, and re-using and the impact of doing nothing.

P6 children at Coylton Primary School took up the challenge and combined their ideas to create an inspirational poster which ticked all the environmental boxes.

Their winning poster will now be displayed at recycling points across Scotland.

Councillor William Grant, Children and Young People Portfolio Holder for South Ayrshire Council said: "Well done to all the children involved. They have captured the spirit of COP26 and given practical advice on what we can all do to help the planet.

"The importance of engaging with and listening to the views of children and young people has never been so important, particularly when it comes to protecting the environment for future generations."
