Once again this year, as part of our L.I.N.E. (Learning In the Natural Environment) work we entered the CPRE My Outdoors Competition. For the second year in a row, Bishops Nympton Primary School have been named as joint winners of the best overall school prize!
The CPRE (Campaign to Protect Rural England) work tirelessly to protect our beautiful and living countryside in Devon. They work to protect, promote and enhance our towns and countryside to make them better places to live, work and enjoy, and to ensure the countryside is protected for now and future generations.
As a L.I.NE provider, I actively encourage the children of Bishops Nympton to experience their outdoor environment, thus enabling them to feel connected and part of our living world. By making this connection, we hope it will enthuse and inspire them to protect and conserve our beautiful and amazing natural world.
This CPRE competition has created the opportunity for the children to think about their loved out door spaces and to imagine a world where these spaces have been built upon and lost forever. As custodians of this planet, it is our responsibility to protect these special outdoor places from destruction.
In addition to the best overall school prize, several children have won the title of ‘Highly Commended’ for their artistic vision of their special outdoor space. A huge congratulations go to: Cole Petherick; Seth Dart; Paige Gardiner; Anoushka Burton.
We proudly received a plaque, celebrating our winning status, a years membership with the CPRE alongside a £200 monetary prize. Our highly commended children received a certificate and a wildlife guide book.
A huge well done to all the children who entered the competition. We look forward to the new competition in the spring term!
