Recycling super-hero helps Oxfordshire pupils learn about recycling waste

Pupils at an Oxfordshire primary school learnt about sustainable living via the story of super-hero Captain Envirotron, thanks to the Sheehan Group.

Children at West Kidlington Primary School were treated to a special reading of the story of ‘Captain Envirotron and the battle to save planet earth’, by its author Tara Sheehan, Finance Director of the Sheehan Group.

Tara wrote the children’s book to educate youngsters on the value of recycling and the Sheehan Group has donated copies to several school libraries across Oxfordshire. In the eye-catching book Captain Envirotron teaches his friends of the importance of recycling waste to save the earth’s resources for the children of tomorrow.

Children also took part in a recycling drawing activity workshop and one lucky pupil will see their sketch placed on the Sheehan Group’s fleet of vehicles to further promote green living.

Tara said: “Recycling waste and sustainable construction is at the heart of the Sheehan Group’s ethos. It’s important now and for future generations and it’s been great fun sharing our passion and knowledge with local school children. Hopefully the book will help spark an interest in recycling among children and their parents in the county.”

Joanne Simpson, Assistant Principle of the West Kidlington School, said: “We are so thankful to the Sheehan Group for delivering such an inspirational talk and engaging story on recycling to our pupils. The school strives to provide a nurturing learning environment and having such rewarding visits from the local community is invaluable. The school shares the Sheehan Group’s passion for recycling and it is fantastic to see our pupils really embracing it.”
