Winners received their prizes recently at the Anse Etoile primary school in the presence of the district’s member of the National Assembly Melval Dugasse, teachers and students from the various schools.

The competition was open to all primary and secondary schools and had three categories namely potted plants, dried flowers and fresh flowers.

In the potted plants category, Anse Etoile primary was the winner followed by School for the Exceptional Child in second place and the Anse Royale secondary in third position.

Plaisance primary was judged as the best in the dried flowers category while English River secondary got the second and third prizes.

Anse Etoile also won the first and second prizes in the fresh flowers category while Beau Vallon secondary settled for third prize.

Winners were awarded with a certificate, a CD featuring songs based on the environment and gardening tools.

All those who took part in the competition received a certificate and a CD.
Terry Mousbe, the school’s environment representative, said the competition, which was first organised last year, forms part of the Anse Etoile primary’s eco-school activities.

Compared to last year, the school is satisfied with the number of schools which took part in the competition this year.

Mr Mousbe said 11 schools took part this year and hopes to get more to join as the competition will become an annual activity.
