Our Lady and Saint Peter RC Primary School (OLSP) pupils recently played host to a marine biologist ahead of this year’s Earth Day.

Sophie Wilson, a marine biologist working for the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, joined the children at OLSP to pass on her passion for the seas and inspire them about the amazing world beneath the waves.

The school joined fellow St Margaret Clitherow Catholic Academy Trust (SMCCAT) members to celebrate the day on Friday, April 22.

Pupils also planted trees and built a pond at the George Street site as part of the trust’s campaign to support the environment.

Margaret Land, sustainability officer at SMCCAT, said: “The theme for Earth Day this year is ‘Invest in our Planet’, and our schools are continuing their commitment to protect the planet by planting trees, litter picking, beach combing, making bird feeders and helping the wildlife to thrive.”
