PUPILS have been learning how small things can add up to great changes.

Myddelton Preparatory School, in Denbigh, have been learning about sustainability and the Global Goals.

Youngsters have been working with parent volunteers to create a school garden. This has been nominated for an award in Wales in Bloom.

The prep school has also taken part in the Young Enterprise Fiver Challenge and developed ethical businesses with a theme of sustainability.

Katie Gresley-Jones, head of Prep School, said: "Pupils were semi-finalists in the Enterprise Troopers primary school competition and received the award for most eco/environmental entrepreneurs for their selling of Welsh Wooden Gifts.

"We have teamed up with groups and individuals from all over the world through Skype and have taken part in virtual lessons with Global Goal ambassadors as well as other schools across the country.

"With the help of WE Schools, our pupils have begun charity projects such as Read for Good to raise money and awareness for specific global goals such as clean water and sanitation and a quality education for all."

Pupils paid a visit to Clocaenog wind farm, a new wind farm that is currently being developed in the area.

Ms Gresley-Jones added: "As well carrying out practical science experiments around biomass and solar power, we concluded our topic by writing to our local councillor to request her support in declaring a climate emergency in Denbighshire.

"We hope that by giving our pupils these opportunities we will inspire them to make great changes."
