Newlands Primary have entered the annual Southampton schools Christmas tree competition - AND HAVE WON FIRST PRIZE!!
This year our tree addressed the issues surrounding plastic pollution in our seas.
Mrs Zampedri and Mrs Broderick have coordinated the work produced by children from across the school. Waste plastic was used to create a variety of colourful and attractive sea creatures that have been hung from the tree.
The tree is currently on display at the Civic Centre having been awarded first prize.
There is also an informative display in school in the Library corridor that looks at the problems of plastics in the marine environment and explains the process of making this year's tree.
