Primary school presented with environmental film award

Delphis Eco has presented the Flora Stevenson Primary School in Edinburgh with an Eco Turtle as part of its prize for being the overall winner of the 'Hot Water Film Awards' from Cool It Schools. This was quite an achievement for the school as the entries are submitted worldwide.

The competition was run by sustainability awareness group Cool it Schools with prizes including an Eco Turtle donated by Delphis Eco, Kudlian Animate It software, DK Books, and the Cool it Schools Soft Oscar. Flora Stevenson Primary School was the overall winner of the awards for its film entitled 'Secret of the seas'.

Iain Stewart, marketing director at Delphis Eco, said: “We have partnered Eco Schools for several years and it is no surprise that the sustainability question is understood and embraced by this age group. The aim of the film award is to highlight to school children and students, aged 4 to 25, that water is the world's most precious resource. In the field of sustainable chemicals, schools and universities are leading by example and showing everyone that sustainable resourcing is the only way forward.”

Headmistress, Irene Brennan, said: “We are delighted to have won such a fantastic prize. As an Eco School we are always thinking of ways to look after our world and we hope that our animation will be a great reminder to others.”
