Students learn to be eco-friendly

Youngsters at St Ninian's High School in Douglas are being inspired to help protect the environment by making small changes in their lives.

An Eco-Day for year seven pupils has been organised by the One World Centre.

It's seen children visit 16 different 'stations' around the school to learn practical ways to 'go green' - from eating local food and recycling waste, to using solar power and cycling to school.

Tonight (Wednesday) the youngsters will perform an Eco Extravanganza in school, which they've created during the day with the MovingSounds theatre company.

Ed Wade-Martins has been helping the pupils find an issue to tackle.

The Eco Days have been held at each of the Island's secondary schools over the past five years.
