Scavengers took to the streets of a village at the weekend as they put their eco and technology skills to the test.

Forty pupils and their parents from Chrishall School spent Saturday afternoon on a scavenger hunt, using an interactive app, Junaio, which guided them to different parts of the village. When they reached their destinations, the participants had to complete an ecology-based task such as collecting items, looking for animal tracks, or drawing certain flora and fauna.

They then returned to their school where they took part in a craft session entitled ‘Trash to Treasure’, involving making new items from rubbish.

Tracey Bratley, headteacher at Chrishall School, said: “This event encapsulated the ethos of the school, combining new technology, ecology, sustainability, team work and environmental awareness.

“I was very proud of the enthusiasm shown by the children taking part, whose ages ranged from five to 11. It was a great day, adding a new dimension to school events and one which will be repeated.”
