Pupils pitch green transport ideas to dragons
Pupils were invited to pitch ideas for greener ways to travel to school.
The competition was launched by entrepreneur and former Dragons' Den panellist Hilary Devey, working with Leicestershire County Council, and took place at Hilary's haulage company, Pall-Ex, in Ellistown.
Students from Our Lady's Convent School, Boothwood Primary, Loughborough Church of England Primary and Rendell Primary, all in Loughborough, as well as Saint Winefride's Catholic Primary, in Shepshed, each sent two students to present ideas that would encourage walking, cycling and scooting to school.
Denis Shiels, head teacher of Saint Winefride's, said: "Students performed mimes, created a rap and even splattered the dragons with various pollutants to really highlight the harmful effects of water and air pollution."
