Students get council backing for green plans
Published on 07/06/18
Students from Cromer Academy have put forward their ideas for a greener school and town in a meeting with North Norfolk District Council’s cabinet member for the environment.
Members of the student council raised issues such as graffiti, pot holes, and the condition of Cromer’s skate park with NNDC councillor Hilary Cox when she visited the school on Wednesday, June 6.
Mrs Cox promised to raise the issues with the district council, and encouraged students to continue speaking up about issues that concern them.
Students also outlined their plans to make the school more eco-friendly by recycling more and ditching single-use plastics – a scheme supported by Mrs Cox, who hopes to supply the school with new recycling bins.
Headteacher Antony Little said: “We are very grateful to Councillor Cox for her time, and I'm very proud of the mature and interesting contributions that the students made.”
