A donation of over 200 plastic water bottles will quench the thirst of hard-working pupils at Church Lane Primary School in Sleaford.

Gemma Blanchard, senior administrator at the school,explained they are promoting healthy eating and drinking among pupils and wanted to help parents and children join in.

She said: “One idea was a fresh water bottle, but with limited resources we went to Engie, the contractors for our Private Finance Iniative-built school building. They kindly jumped at the chance and provided over 200 bottles very quickly, one for every child in the school.”

The youngsters will have the bottles with them at all times during the school day to keep hydrated and water monitors have been appointed in classes to make sure the bottles are regularly cleaned.

In another move, year five pupils have created and run a healthy eating tuck shop.
