School aims to cut carbon footprint

School Reporters in Diss
School Reporters in Norfolk help a world weather record attempt

A team of School Reporters at Diss High School in Norfolk has interviewed a local councillor about the ways they can reduce carbon emissions.

"Norfolk County Council has promised us £2,500 if we can reduce our energy consumption by 15%," say students Danielle and Bernadette.

The school took part in the Met Office World Record weather attempt and a team of keen weather watchers is writing a story on the new weather station the school is building with an EU grant.

A 'happy' school?

Also the school governor has come in for a grilling from tough School Reporters about a project to plant fruit trees in the community. Students are finding out where people want the trees to be planted.

Students are also asking their fellow pupils if Diss High School is a happy school. This comes after a newspaper report said that a nearby school has been told it's "happy" by the schools regulator, Ofsted.
