Pollution Monitoring in Academy Road

In January the Junior Road Safety Officers, Lily and Kirsty from P6, helped to install pollution monitors in Academy Road.

The monitors measured different types of air pollution. We have now discovered that at peak times, pollution levels are quite high.

The next step is to try and reduce this and so we held a competition to design a banner to encourage park and stride and walking.

The winners of the competition were Ellie from P6 and Jamie from P7. Their winning entries were turned into large banners which will be mounted outside the school playground.
