Energy abusers named and shamed

Pupils at Maesteg Comprehensive School are playing their part to save the planet as part of BBC's School Report.

We have been focusing on recycling and energy conservation and have put all our information into a television news report.

To recycle we have been collecting bottles and paper then putting them into our recycling bins.

And to save energy we have a few pupils from our eco committee who have been our light police.

They patrol our school looking for teachers who have left their lights on when not in use.

When teachers get caught we send them a letter telling them not to leave their lights on again and give them a second chance.

When we interviewed our local MP, Huw Irranca Davies, he said: "I think that our community should be able to have insulated houses and I think that pensioners would benefit from it.

"Also, in a few years a lot of adults are going to be turning to young children to ask them how they think we should recycle, because you are the ones that are learning about it now."

We are going to be moving to a new Maesteg Comprehensive School which is going to be eco-friendly because we will have a nursery, recycled toilet paper, a bike rack and a lot of other eco-friendly things. Our motto is IT'S OUR WORLD, IT'S OUR FUTURE, PLEASE KEEP IT ECO FRIENDLY!!!!
